A terrestrial bromeliad endemic to Ecuador. Of the five subpopulations, the two best known are those in the Reserva Forestal Ola Vida near Puyo and on the Hollín-Loreto road. Although the species does not occur inside Ecuador’s protected areas network the Hollín-Loreto road subpopulation is close to the Parque Nacional Sumaco-Napo-Galeras. The principal threat is deforestation due to colonization and forest conversion to croplands. Habitat destruction is the only known threat to the species.
