The following information is based on the name of the plant provided by the donor, and assumes that the name is correct. If the plant has been misidentified, then the following information may not be correct.

ORIGIN/HABITAT: Brazil. This endemic orchid was found originally near Petropolis, but it is now known to occur in many areas in the cool coastal mountains between Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, usually at 2000–4500 ft. (610–1370 m). In the humid, moist, cloudforest habitat most surfaces are covered in moss several centimeters long, and Pabstia jusosa grows on moss-covered trees and rocks. Sophronitis coccinea, Promenaea xanthina, Scuticaria hadwenii, Maxillaria punctata, and Oncidium gardnerii are also found in the same region.
