A hemiepiphyte endemic to Ecuador, where it is known from a single 1938 collection. The locale is unknown, since the description only says "Pastaza." It is likely that the locale was near Puyo, in which case it may be present in the Parque Nacional Llanganates and the Parque Nacional Sangay. The only specimen was apparently destroyed in the Berlin herbarium, which may have hampered identification of recent collections. No specimens of this species are housed in Ecuadorean museums. Apart from habitat destruction, no specific threats are known.
