This elegant species is another unifoliate type, with single leaves of up to 10cm x 20cm, that drape down over the moss-covered tree trunk on which the roots are anchored. Note the many small seedlings to the left. It is distributed through the mountainous border area dividing Zimbabwe and Mozambique.

A close view of the flower and seed pods can be seen here.
