The origin/habitat information below is supplied courtesy of Charles and Margaret Baker

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.
This text is copyrighted by the Bakers and may not be reproduced without permission.

ORIGIN/HABITAT: The West Indies, Venezuela, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia. Plants grow on trees in very wet forests at 250-2800 ft. (80-850 m). In Ecuador, this orchid is most common on the eastern slopes of the Andes in the Provinces of Napo, Pastaza, Tungurahua, and Morona-Santiago, but it is occasionally found in the northern Provinces of Carchí and Esmeraldas. In Peru, plants grow near Iquitos in the Department of Loreto at about 400 ft. (120 m). Collections in Venezuela were made near Santa Teresa, in the southeastern part of the State of Bolívar, at 2450-2950 ft. (750-900 m).
