Assessor(s): Montúfar, R. & Pitman, N.
Reviewer(s): Valencia, R., Pitman, N., Léon-Yánez, S. & Jørgensen, P.M. (Ecuador Plants Red List Authority)
Justification:
A terrestrial herb endemic to Ecuador, where it is known from two collections in the Andean region of Pichincha province. First recorded in 1895, in an unknown locale close to Quito. No information is available for the second collection, but it probably occurred in the same province. Widespread destruction of native vegetation in the Quito valley may merit a high threat category, but the species holotype was destroyed in the Berlin herbarium during the Second World War and the holotype in the QPLS herbarium is not yet confirmed. Considered Data Deficient until its taxonomic situation is verified. No specimens of this species are housed in Ecuadorian museums. Habitat destruction is the only known threat to the species
