A shrub endemic to Ecuador. Known from a single population recorded by K. Lehmann in 1876–81, in Sinangüe, between Ulushapa and Oña, in Azuay or Loja province. The lack of new collections may be due to the destruction of the only type in the Berlin herbarium during the Second World War. A phototype exists in the Field Museum. No specimens of this species are housed in Ecuadorian museums. Habitat destruction is the only known threat to the species.
