Global Range: Four populations of Spiranthes delitescens have been found in Arizona ranging over 8 sq km. Their range includes Cochise County - Babocomari Cienega, Santa Cruz County - along Turkey Creek, at Canello Hills Cienega along O'Donnell creek, and on a slope below Sheehy Spring (Sheviak 1990).
According to Sheviak (1990), this species most likely exists in Mexico, however to date, no plants have been located south of Arizona. The occurrence of other populations of this species of Ladies' Tresses in the United States, is probably unlikely due to the limited available locations possessing the specific habitat parameters which appear to be required by these plants (Sheviak 1990).
