A small to medium sized epiphytic species found in Gabon and Zaire in rainforests at elevations up to 1350 meters with a tufted, slender, branching stem carrying many, distichous, fleshy, linear-lanceolate, to oblong-lanceolate, apically subulate-acuminate, broad leaves that blooms in the winter on a short, single flowered inflorescence and is similar to Angraecum distichum but differs in having narrower linear-lanceolate and acuminate leaves. This species grows in fairly heavy shade, needing high humidity and hot to cool conditions.
