Cephalanthera pusilla was first described by Hooker f. (1894) as curious, little plant with the name Galeola pusilla. Hooker f. (1894) only saw one specimen of this very rare plant, which is fully coloured in white. Tang & F.T. Wang (1951) transferred the species to the genus Aphyllorchis and Seidenfaden (1975) finally proposed the transfer to Cephalanthera wich is the accepted name today for most authors (WCSP). The species occures in South China and Myanmar (POWO).
