This species has been found only once in 1930 in Khao Phanom Bencha, a mountain of 1398 mt in Krabi province by Dr. A.G.F. Kerr, a botanist extensively travel and studying plants all along Thailand from 1902 to 1932. The record is extremely old and at the current state has to be considered dubious.
