This small, hot growing epiphyte with subcylydrical to terete leaves is the only Angraecum endemic to the Comoros Islands. It is found at an altitude of 350-600 meters in open exposed areas on the lower branches facing westwards.

It is a miniature plant which bears white flowers with a long creamy yellow spur to 20 cm. Flowers are borne mostly singly but sometimes a few form successively.
Nice evening fragrance, fresh, with some spice.
