A rare vine endemic to Ecuador, where it is known from four sites in wet coastal forest and a disjunct population in the Amazon lowlands, near Lagartococha. The coastal populations were recorded in the Reserva Etnica Awá and 40.1 km west of Lita. Not known to occur inside Ecuador’s protected areas network, but could potentially occur in the Cotacachi-Cayapas, Yasuní, Cuyabeno and Sumaco-Napo-Galeras protected areas. Apart from habitat destruction, no specific threats are known.
