Sarcochilus hillii var. thycolus is an endemic orchid of New Caledonia, which would be located on Pouembout-Ouaté area and in forêt de la Thy zone. S. hillii var. thycolus is found in dry forest and damaged patches of humid forest at an altitudinal range 180-900 m asl. Despite botanical descriptions, difference between varieties thycolus and hillii are not completely clear which results in misdetermination. As long as taxonomy and collection between both varieties of S. hillii are not clarified, S. hillii var. thycolus qualifies as Data Deficient.
