A subshrub endemic to Ecuador. According to Smith (1944), this species is present on the Corazón and Llinizas volcanos, and in the "Nudo de Tiupullo", near the border between Pichincha and Cotopaxi provinces, in the Area de Recreación Boliche. A taxonomic revision of the genus in all the Andean countries is a prerequisite for an accurate assessment of the species' conservation status. No specimens of this species are housed in Ecuadorean museums. Apart from habitat destruction, no specific threats are known.
