An epiphytic bromeliad endemic to Ecuador's coastal forest where it is known only from the type, found near Bucay. Additional specimens have been prepared from private collections of the type specimen. Given its characteristics, the species may be a natural hybrid between G. monostachia (L.) Rusby ex Mez and Tillandsia complanata Benth. This may be the reason why there have not been further records from the collection locale. No specimens of this species are housed in Ecuadorian museums. Habitat destruction is the only known threat to the species.
