ORIGIN/HABITAT: Vietnam. This epiphytic orchid is found in the northeastern province of Cao Bang near Tra Linh as well as near Ha Giang. Plants are rather rare in the region, but they may be locally common near ridge tops. Plants are found in open, dry, mossy, primary forests of mixed and coniferous trees that are growing on weathered limestone at 2150-2950 ft. (650-900 m).
