Its native range is from southern Mexico down to Tropical America. It is found in Belize, Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, the Leeward Islands, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Trinidad-Tobago, Venezuela, Venezuelan Antilles and the Windward Islands.[1]

The genus name of Ruyschia is in honour of Frederik Ruysch (1638–1731), a Dutch botanist and anatomist. He is known for developing techniques for preserving anatomical specimens, which he used to create dioramas or scenes incorporating human parts.[2] It was first described and published in Enum. Syst. Pl. on page 2 in 1760.[1]
