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: Widespread from the Philippines to Borneo and Java and eastward to New Guinea, Guadalcanal, and the Solomon Islands. In the Philippines, plants are found in many locations on Luzon, Leyte, and Mindanao at about 1200 ft. (360 m). On Borneo, plants are reported from Sabah, where they grow in the lowlands and in the hill and lower mountain forests at 1300-4900 ft. (400-1500 m). This orchid, which is fairly common in both east and west Java, is always found in forests that do not dry out very much, which means that they usually grow along the south coast at 1300-3300 ft. (400-1000 m).
