Justification:
A shrub endemic to Ecuador, known from three historical collections made 150 years ago. Locale data is unknown, since the collection labels only mention "In Andinus Quitensibus", this probably refers to the forest that used to surround Quito. No specimens of this species are housed in Ecuadorian museums. Habitat destruction is the main threat to the species.
