Justification:
An epiphytic bromeliad endemic to Ecuador's eastern Andean slopes. One subpopulation has been recorded in the Cordillera de Huacamayos and two in the Parque Nacional-Sumaco Napo-Galeras on the Hollín-Coca road. Its habitat is the lower strata of primary forests and its principal threat is deforestation due to colonization of areas near the road. Probably occurs in the Reserva Ecológica Antisana and the Reserva Ecológica Cayambe-Coca. Habitat destruction is the only known threat to the species.
