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: This often-named terrestrial orchid is found from southern Florida through the Caribbean to South America in Brazil and Colombia. Plants in Florida were found in Dade County in a dense hammock in 1905 and Highlands County in 1936 where they were growing in a low, moist hammock. These swampy forests have given way to progress, and it is not known whether or not plants still survive in out-of-the-way locations in Florida. Plants are said to be common in the Bahama Islands where they grow in rather dense coppices, reportedly blooming January to March. In Puerto Rico this orchid is uncommon but is known from the western part of the island where it grows in thick humus in the shade of moist to wet montane forests at 1000-2950 ft. (300-900 m).
