ORIGIN/HABITAT: Africa from Kenya in the north to Tanzania and Uganda, spreading westward throughout tropical Africa to Liberia and southward to Angola and Natal in South Africa. This species is widely distributed in South America and the Caribbean, and has recently been reported as spreading throughout Florida. In Kenya, plants are found in leaf-mold in shady forests and rocky scrub near the sea from near sea level to about 1000 ft. (300 m). In other parts of Africa, however, la Croix & la Croix (1997) reported plants growing at elevations as high as 3950 ft. (1200 m). This terrestrial orchid is found in many locations on the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico where it grows in deep humus in dense shade of mature and disturbed dry to wet forests from near sea level to 2450 ft. (750 m). Plants have recently been found on St. John in the Virgin Islands, and are reported to be fairly widespread on wooded hillsides in Jamaica.
