(900 m) and in the Pico de Naiguatá at 6550 ft. (2000 m), as well as in the states of Monagas and Táchira, with no additional details reported. Dunsterville & Garay (1959) and Dunsterville & Dunsterville (1988), however, reported the occurrence of this orchid near Caripe in northeastern Venezuela, again without giving any specific details.
