I don't agree with this plant ID. there has long been confusion between D. wentianum and this plant, which should be called D. obtusisepalum or chrysopterum.
the original description of D. wentianum (1911) is here

http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/item/152054#page/14/mode/1up

and some characteristics (stems flexuose, strongly recurved mentum, 1 cm long, ovate, leaves) absolutely don't apply to the plant here pictured.
you will notice that Kew lists them all as synonyms
