This species is another of our Australian species and comes from New South Wales where it is known as the boulder orchid. This is due to its preferred habitat being rocks, boulders and cliff faces in forested areas where it is found from 400m to 1400m altitude.
It is a cool growing species that produces a mass of roots. Flower stems come from the mass of growths that develop over time.
