A shrub or tree endemic to Ecuador, where it is known to occur in two dry inter-Andean valleys, on the western slopes of the Andes: in the Río Chanchán valley, close to Huigra, and in the Río Girón valley, near Girón. Few collections have been made, and the most recent collection is from 1971. The holotype was apparently destroyed in the Berlin herbarium during the Second World War. No specimens of this species are housed in Ecuadorean museums. Apart from habitat destruction, no specific threats are known.
