ORIGIN/HABITAT: New Guinea. This orchid was discovered in Dutch New Guinea (now Irian Jaya) in 1914 on the north coast near Mamberamo. Habitat elevation was not reported, but this is a low-lying coastal plain, so the habitat was probably not very high. More recently, plants have been found in Papua New Guinea where they are rather common is a small area in the Central Province and grow on the lower trunks of large trees in semideciduous forest and drier rainforest margins from about 500 (160 m) up to 1650 ft. (500 m). Siegerist (2001) reported that this orchid is also found in Borneo, but we have been unable to find any reference to the habitat location or elevation in that region.
