Assessor(s): Romero-Saltos, H. & Pitman, N.
Reviewer(s): Valencia, R., Pitman, N., Léon-Yánez, S. & Jørgensen, P.M. (Ecuador Plants Red List Authority)
Justification:
A vine or liana endemic to Ecuador, where it is known from four subpopulations in the coastal foothills of the Andes. The southernmost subpopulation was recorded in the Ila mountains (near Patricia Pilar, between Los Ríos and Pichincha, now a very disturbed locale) and the northernmost one in Ventanas, Esmeraldas province. The other subpopulations occur in the watersheds of the Cayapas and San Miguel rivers, where the species' flowers are used as decoration by the natives. The Esmeraldas collections have been made in both primary and secondary forest. M. dodsonii may be widely distributed in the southern extension of the Chocó bioregion, in this area of Ecuador. It may also occur in the Reserva Ecológica Cotacachi-Cayapas and could reach Colombia. The principal threat is the large-scale deforestation of Ecuador's northwestern forests over the last 50 years.
