Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Data Deficient ver 3.1
Year Published: 2004
Date Assessed: 2004-04-30
Assessor(s): Neill, D. & Pitman, N.
Reviewer(s): Valencia, R., Pitman, N., Léon-Yánez, S. & Jørgensen, P.M. (Ecuador Plants Red List Authority)
Justification:
A shrub endemic to high-elevation Andean Ecuador. A taxonomic revision of the genus in all the Andean countries is a prerequisite for an accurate assessment of the species' conservation status. The type was collected on the Volcán Chimborazo "near permanent ice" and the type population is apparently protected by the Reserva de Producción Faunística Chimborazo. No specimens of this species are housed in Ecuadorean museums. Apart from habitat destruction, no specific threats are known.
