A hemiepiphyte endemic to coastal Ecuador. First collected in San Lorenzo in 1943 and rediscovered in 1991 in the Reserva Etnica Awá. The recent collection was made along a creek. If the old population still exists it may be inside the Reserva Ecológica Mataje-Cayapas. The principal threats are road construction and timber extraction. May occur in Colombian forests.
