This print is one of a series of illustrations made for J. F. Cathcart of the Bengal Civil Service in 1855. The plates were executed by W. H. Fitch and analysed by the famous botanist J. D. Hooker. The following is an excerpt from Hooker's description.

“Dr. Lindley says of this that " no more remarkable Orchid has been found in Northern India;" and though not so showy as the gorgeous Dendrobia (chrysanthum, Devonianum, Farmeri, etc.), amongst which it grows, it exceeds any of these in its singularity, and its chaste elegant appearance. Living specimens which I sent to Calcutta flowered in the Botanical Gardens there, but did not survive the voyage to England. ”
