Distribution of character states: monosymmetric, tailed or fimbriate
5-2 cm wide at base, laciniate, larger bracts also lobed, finely hairy on both sides, shining, reddish purple, gradually narrowing into a filiform apex; margins with few fimbrillae or usually not fimbriate
42b- Petals connate at the base for less than 1/2 of their length, bearing fimbriate
appendages at the apex of the petal tube.
Petals lingulate, obtuse, 17-19 mm long, each with a pair of fimbriate
basal appendages, pale yellow tipped with white.
Microornamentation types are: bacillate, with thin, elongate, rodlike structures; filamentose, with long filaments borne on the macroornamentation; fimbriate
, with elaborated processes at the apex of projecting ornamentation; and granulate, with minute, grainlike, "rather amorphous" deposits on the macroornamentation.
5 cm, pale stramineous, thinly coriaceous, coarsely nerved, entire, imbricate, distinctly exceeding the internodes but not completely covering the scape, sparsely covered by fimbriate
inconspicuous white trichomes.
7 x 3 mm, subspreading to reflexed, equaling to slightly exceeding the sepals, margins densely and inconspicuously denticulate, bearing fimbriate
30 mm long, reddishorange toward the apex, glabrous; petals bearing fimbriate
Flowers with a very slender, white floccose, 611 mm long pedicel, polystichously arranged on the ultimate branches; sepals strongly asymmetrical, 710 mm long, armed with a 13 mm long pale mucro, nerved, white floccose but becoming less so with age, yellow-green; corolla spreading; petals lingulate, broadly acute, 1518 mm long, each with a pair of basal, fimbriate
5 x 4 mm, white-lanate; floral bracts triangular, acuminate, 8-9 x 7 mm, membranaceous, greenish-hyaline, entire, carinate, nerved, densely and coarsely white-lepidote at apex with fimbriate
trichomes, white-lanate at base, slightly exceeding the ovary to equaling the middle of the sepals; flowers 29-30 mm long (with extended petals), sessile, strongly fragrant; sepals oblong-ovate to elliptic, acute and distinctly apiculate, 8-9.
