Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Data Deficient ver 3.1
Year Published: 2004
Date Assessed: 2004-04-30
Assessor(s): Pitman, N.
Reviewer(s): Valencia, R., Pitman, N., Léon-Yánez, S. & Jørgensen, P.M. (Ecuador Plants Red List Authority)
Justification:
A sedge endemic to Ecuador, where it is known from a single collection by Padre L. Sodiro before 1886. The historical population was recorded in a forest near Gualea, approximately 4 km northwest of Nanegalito, currently outside Ecuador’s protected areas network. If the holotype in the Berlin herbarium was destroyed during the Second World War, the only record may a a photograph at the Field Museum. There is a possibility that an isotype occurs in the Quito herbarium, where many of Sodiro’s collections are deposited. Until the species' taxonomic status is clarified, no threat category is suggested. Apart from habitat destruction, no specific threats are known.
