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: New Guinea and the Solomon Islands. This species is distributed widely in both Papua New Guinea and Irian Jaya (Indonesian or western New Guinea). In Papua, Schlechter found these plants in the Minjem Valley at about 1650 ft. (500 m) and near Jaduna on the Waria River at about 1000 ft. (300 m). This species reportedly also occurs in Sumatra, the Celebes, and the Moluccas, but details of habitat locations and elevations were not given. The plant that is now considered a synonym, Bulbophyllum cominsii, is widespread in the Solomon Islands, growing in coastal forests, mangrove swamps, and coconut plantations from near sea level to about 150 ft. (50 m).
