Where is mitral bicuspid valve located in the heart?

Mitral Valve: Bicuspid mitral valve is redundant. The (normal) mitral valve is bicuspid and named after a bishop's miter, which it resembles. The valve is located between the left atrium and left ventricle. It opens during diastole to fill the ventricle and closes during systole to prevent blood from leaking back.
