Species Authority: Sodiro

Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Data Deficient ver 3.1
Year Published: 2003
Date Assessed: 2003-04-30
Annotations:
Needs updating
Assessor(s): Mogollón, H. & Pitman, N.
Reviewer(s): Valencia, R., Pitman, N., Léon-Yánez, S. & Jørgensen, P.M. (Ecuador Plants Red List Authority)
Justification:
A vine endemic to Ecuador and known from two collections recorded by Padre L. Sodiro in the Pululahua crater more than 100 years ago. May be confined to the old crater, but could also occur on the western slopes of Mindo valley. The location of the holotype is unknown, there are no isotypes mentioned, and it has been suggested that the species may be a variety of B. multiflora (Neuendorf in Jørgensen and León-Yánez 1999). The principal threat is habitat alteration. No specimens of this species are housed in Ecuadorian museums. Habitat destruction is the only known threat to the species.
