Reviewer(s): Valencia, R., Pitman, N., Léon-Yánez, S. & Jørgensen, P.M. (Ecuador Plants Red List Authority)
Justification:
A subshrub, shrub or liana endemic to Ecuador. The genus Cyathomone is also endemic to Ecuador. Known from a single collection, recorded by L. Sodiro near the Río Pilatón (an affluent of the Río Toachi), east of Alluriquín, in Pichincha province. Not recorded again in the past century, even though the area has been well explored by botanists in the last 20 years. The lack of new records may be due to the destruction of the type specimen in the Berlin herbarium during the Second World War. Considered Data Deficient until its taxonomy is clarified. The principal threat is conversion of forest to croplands and urban land. Not known to occur in Ecuador's protected areas network, but should be searched for in the Reserva Ecológica Los Ilinizas. No specimens of this species are housed in Ecuadorian museums.
