A terrestrial herb endemic to high-elevation Andean Ecuador. According to Smith (1944), this species grows on the Pichincha, Antisana and Chimborazo volcanos; possibly also occurs on the Volcán Cotacachi. 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.
