Costus malortieanus is found in southern Nicaragua and northern Costa Rica from lowlands to the lower parts of the central mountain chains. The altitude range is from near sea level up to 900 metres. The Extent of Occurrence (EOO) was calculated using GeoCAT to construct a convex polygon around the known collection sites, calculated to nearly 23,000 km2. The Area of Occupancy (AOO) was also calculated by GeoCAT using an auto-value to construct a cell width of 24 km, calculated at nearly 15,000 km2.
