Range Description

This species is a little known, small, epiphytic orchid, with a seemingly very disjunct distribution, being reported to occur in Ecuador and southeastern Brazil. The taxon described by Rodrigues in 1881 is only known from five collections. Three were made in the state of Rio de Janeiro (Morro Queimado and mountains of Rodeio), over 50 years ago, one made in 1989, in the Parque Estadual do Desengano (Rio de Janeiro) and one in 1982, about 2,800 miles away in Morona-Santiago, in Ecuador.
