Justification:
A terrestrial bromeliad endemic to Ecuador. Three of the four recorded collections were made at kilometer 4 of the Lita-Alto Tambo road, among rocks on the banks of the Río Negro. The fourth collection was made by X. Cornejo in the Reserva Ecológica Cotacachi-Cayapas. This area is being deforested, which has led to higher water levels, increased pollution and sedimentation and the destruction of the habitat.
