Illustration shows part monochromatic, part colour study of leaves and flowers. Side figure represents lip and ovary with the sepals and petals cut away. Inscribed in pencil by Miss Drake along top edge, 'The upper bracts slightly hairy, sweet scented', and 'Sion Gardens Aug. 31 18..'[date has been cropped]. There is a semi-circular blob of red paint or possibly sealing wax on the top edge of drawing. Also inscribed in a different hand 'Rec'd. 15.9.1925' lower right corner. Drawing taken from flower held in the collection of His Grace the Duke of Northumberland at Sion. According to Lindley's publication 'It is a native of the East Indies, whence it has also been sent from the Botanic Garden, Calcutta, to the Horticultural Society'.
