Identification. The somewhat elongate sprawling habit, in which the plants may form clonal colonies, together with the membranous, elliptic leaves with spreading primary and conspicuously tessellate tertiary venation and the solitary inflorescence suggest affinity with species such as S. patentinervia Engl. and S. brevicuspis Hook. f. (Malay Peninsula) ( Hay and Yuzammi 2000).

Distribution and ecology. Endemic to Sabah. Terrestrial in mid-montane forest near streams (but not rheophytic) at ca. 1200–1500 m elev.
