Justification:
A terrestrial fern endemic to Ecuador, where it is known to grow along riverbanks in very wet conditions. Known from three subpopulations. One subpopulation has ten individuals, mostly juveniles, along the Quebrada San José, 27 km along the Lita-San Lorenzo road, Esmeraldas province. The other two subpopulations are in the Reserva Etnica Awá and the ENDESA private reserve, both in Pichincha province. Probably occurs inside the Reserva Ecológica Cotacachi-Cayapas. No specimens of this species are housed in Ecuadorian museums. Habitat destruction is the main threat.
