A terrestrial herb endemic to Ecuador, where it has been reported twice in the Andean region. One collection was made in 1871; the label description mentions "Crescit prope Panecillo haud procul a praedio Hacienda Pesillo inter urben Quito et La Esperanza". Another collection, from Carchi province, was reported by L. Mille more than 50 years ago. The lack of new collections might be due to taxonomic problems, as the type was deposited in the Berlin herbarium before the Second World War and may have been lost. No specimens of this species are housed in Ecuadorian museums. Habitat destruction is the only known threat to the species.
