ORIGIN/HABITAT: An extremely widespread and frequently named terrestrial orchid distributed from the Himalayan Region in northeast India into China, Taiwan, the Ryukyu Islands, Southeast Asia, Malaya, Borneo, the Philippines, Sumatra, Java, and the Indonesian Islands to New Guinea and Australia. In northeast India and the Himalayan Region, plants are known from Nepal, Bhutan, Sikkim, the Khasia Hills, and Manipur, with distribution extending to the Andaman Islands, Deccan, and Sri Lanka. In this region, plants are found in the tropical zone at 800-2800 ft. (250-850 m), with plants from Sikkim reported as occurring at 2600-2950 ft. (800-900 m). Across Southeast Asia, plants are known from Myanmar (Burma), Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam. In China, this species is known from southern Fujian, southern Guangdong, Hainan, Guangxi and southern Yunnan with plants found in shady places in forests and along ravines at elevations below 6550 ft. (2000 m). In the Philippines, plants are found in numerous locations in forests on Luzon, as well as the islands of Palawan, and Mindanao at 500-4250 ft. (150-1300 m). Plants are found throughout Malaya without specific habitat information being reported. In Sumatra, plants have been collected from near Bohorok in North Sumatra as well as from the Batu and the Mentawai Islands at about 1800 ft. (550 m). In Borneo, plants are known from the lowlands and hill forests in Brunei, Kalimantan, Sabah, and Sarawak at elevations from near sea level to 2600 ft. (800 m). In Java, this orchid is found all over the island where it grows in secondary forest and on grassy banks and roadsides at 650-3300 ft. (200-1000 m) and reported grows well in either shade or open situations. This orchid is common in New Guinea where it grows in many locations around the island on the forest floor in deep forest litter and on the banks of small creeks within the rainforest. In Australia, plants are found in northern Queensland from the tip of the Cape York Peninsula southward to Townsville where it is a widespread and common species that usually grows below 3000 ft. (910 m) in rainforests, along protected stream banks in open forest, and may sometimes be found near to low-lying swampy areas.
