Remarks: The flowering spike is robust with a hollow stem, 25-60 cm tall, and bearing up to 50 flowers. Plants grow to a height of from 15 to 70 cm. The 4-7 erect yellowish-green leaves are hooded at the tip. The inflorescence is 4-12 cm long, with up to 50 blooms. The labellum appears long and narrow, since its sides are strongly reflexed (folded back). The tip is shallowly three-lobed. The flower is often flesh-coloured  and the labellum normally has loop-shaped markings.
