Justification:
An epiphytic bromeliad endemic to Ecuador. Known from three subpopulations: one located 10–15 km east of Limón on the road to Gualaceo; another near Méndez in an unknown locale; and a third in the Cordillera de Huacamayos. Not known to occur inside Ecuador’s protected areas network, but it is likely that it will be found in the Parque Nacional Sangay, the Parque Nacional Sumaco-Napo-Galeras and the Reserva Ecológica Antisana. The principal threat is forest conversion to pasture. Habitat destruction is the only known threat to the species.
