Abstract: For the Lie group $G = Sp(n, {\mathbb R} )$, let $D_i $ be the open $G-$orbit of Lagrangian planes of signature $(i,n-i)$ in the generalized flag variety of Lagrangian planes in ${\mathbb C} ^{2n}$. For a suitably chosen maximal compact subgroup $K$ of $G$ and a base point $x_i$ we have that the $K-$orbit of $x_i$ is a maximal compact subvariety of $D_i $. We show that for $i = 1, \dots , n-1$ the connected component containing $Kx_i $ in the space of ${G_{\mathbb C}} $ translates of $Kx_i $ which lie in $D_i $ is biholomorphic to $G/K \times {\overline{G/K}}$, where ${\overline{G/K}}$ denotes $G/K$ with the opposite complex structure.
