Loxostigma is a small genus of about 7 species distributed in Southern China (Sichuan, Yunnan, Guizhou, Guangxi) and Northern Vietnam. The species are terrestrial or epiphytic herbs growing on damp, mossy rocks or on tree trunks in forests, at altitudes of 600 – 2600m.

Species often have an underground rhizome, or lower stems creeping and rooting at the surface.
