DISTRIBUTION. Northeastern to southeastern Brazil (Pernambuco to Sao Paulo): epiphytic and epilithic, sea level to 1850 m altitude.
The typical Brazilian form has green stems, small, greenish-white flowers (to c. 13 mm diam.) and white fruits, but at the southern limits of its range larger-flowered forms represent intergrades with subspecies pulvinigera.
