Year Published: 2003
Date Assessed: 2003-04-30
Annotations:
Needs updating
Assessor(s): Montúfar, R. & Pitman, N.
Reviewer(s): Valencia, R., Pitman, N., Léon-Yánez, S. & Jørgensen, P.M. (Ecuador Plants Red List Authority)
Justification:
A herb or subshrub endemic to Ecuador, where it is known from two records from the northern Andes. Only one collection has precise locale data, near El Angel and potentially inside the Reserva Ecológica El Angel. The holotype was apparently destroyed in the Berlin herbarium during the Second World War. No specimens of this species are housed in Ecuadorian museums. Habitat destruction is the only known threat to the species.
