A terrestrial herb endemic to Ecuador and known from two records in Pichincha province. The type was collected by E. André, prior to 1882, in Monte Corazón at 2,500 m elevation. The second record, by Holmgren and Heilbor, has neither locality nor altitude information. Not recorded in Ecuador's protected areas network, but may occur in montane forest remnants in the Reserva Ecológica Los Ilinizas and the Refugio de Vida Silvestre Pasochoa. The principal threats are deforestation, invasive species and habitat fragmentation. No specimens of this species are housed in Ecuadorian museums. Habitat destruction is the only known threat to the species.
