Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Critically Endangered A2c; B1ab(iii) ver 3.1
Year Published: 2003
Date Assessed: 2003-04-30
Annotations:
Needs updating
Assessor(s): Delgado, T. & Pitman, N.
Reviewer(s): Valencia, R., Pitman, N., Léon-Yánez, S. & Jørgensen, P.M. (Ecuador Plants Red List Authority)
Justification:
A terrestrial herb or subshrub endemic to Ecuador, where it is known from three collections in the Río Palenque private reserve. Gentry (1986) reported a subpopulation of one plant in the same locale and five years later Dodson and Gentry (1991) reported its death. In 1997 the species was assessed as Endangered. Critically Endangered is now warranted because the specie's apparently tiny geographical range occupies a very disturbed area outside of Ecuador’s protected areas system.
History:
1997 Endangered (Walter and Gillett 1998)
