The type collection was recorded in Aluburo near Ibarra and a subsequent collection was made by M. Acosta-Solís, in El Olivo, Ibarra. A search of these locales is necessary to evaluate the species' conservation status. Threatened by deforestation, according to recent collections, and with a very limited distribution. Listed as Indeterminate in 1997. No specimens of this species are housed in Ecuadorian museums. Habitat destruction is the only known threat to the species.
