Assessor(s): Montúfar, R. & Pitman, N.
Reviewer(s): Valencia, R., Pitman, N., Léon-Yánez, S. & Jørgensen, P.M. (Ecuador Plants Red List Authority)
Justification:
A treelet or tree endemic to Ecuador, where it is known from three collections in Azuay province, two of them near Parroquia Baños and one in the southeast of the province. The Baños collections were recorded at the Hacienda Yanasacha and in the Cruz Pambo region; the other collection was made 3 km southeast of Gima on the road to San Miguel de Cuyes. Not known to occur inside Ecuador’s protected areas network. The principal threat is deforestation. Assessed as Vulnerable, but the species' small geographic range merits the Endangered category. No specimens of this species are housed in Ecuadorian museums. Habitat destruction is the only known threat to the species.
History:
