Justification:
An epiphytic or hemiepiphytic aroid endemic to Ecuador, known from a single collection made more than a century ago on the Tungurahua volcano, probably inside what is now the Parque Nacional Sangay. Its confusing taxonomy does not permit an effective evaluation of the species' distribution and conservation status. No specimens of this species are housed in Ecuadorian museums. Habitat destruction is the only known threat to the species.
