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: Malaya, Sumatra, Java, and Sulawesi. In Malaya, this orchid was collected on the Taiping Hills in 1899 and 1901, but then it was unknown until recently when plants were found on Ulu Kali, a mountain northeast of Kuala Lumpur. On Sumatra, Schlechter (1911) reported plants near Padang at 2600 ft. (800 m). In Java, plants are known only from the southern half of western Java at 1950-3950 ft. (500-1000 m). Plants usually grow on the trunks of sugar palms and sago palms. In the past, this orchid was fairly common, but it is now rather rare, probably because the flowers are very attractive causing it to be heavily collected. On Sulawesi, Schlechter (1911, 1925) reported that plants grow near Manado on the Minahassa Peninsula at 2950 ft. (900 m).
