A liana endemic to Ecuador's coastal forest. The type was collected in 1922 in Naranjapata, in the Río Chanchan valley, between Bucay and Huigra, by the German botanist H. Schimpff. Fifty years later, the species was reported in the Río Palenque and Jauneche private reserves, but it is not clear if those records are really the same species. A taxonomic revision of Dioclea is needed to determine the validity of this species. No specimens of this species are housed in Ecuadorean museums. Apart from habitat destruction, no specific threats are known.
