A herb endemic to Ecuador and known from a single collection in lower Andean forest 43 km on the Loja-Zamora road, Zamora province. The bulb is unknown but it may be epiphytic and eventually threatened by deforestation. In 1997 the species was listed as Endangered. Due to the proximity of the original collection site to the Parque Nacional Podocarpus and the relatively recent collection date, the Vulnerable category is suggested. No specimens are housed in Ecuadorian museums. Habitat destruction is the only known threat to the species.
