Aeschynanthus ellipticus has a distribution reported as endemic to New Guinea. It is known to be quite variable, with diploidy, tetraploidy and hexaploidy reported within the species. Material distributed with the names “New Guinea” and “Coral Flame” (which are the same clone) may be A. ellipticus.

It is not certain that the plants pictured here are truly this species, as reliably documented photographs are difficult to source.
