Scientific Name: Lupinus smithianus
Species Authority: Kunth

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 subshrub or shrub endemic to Ecuador. Reported by Smith (1944) from the Pichincha, Mojanda, Cotopaxi and Chimborazo volcanoes, and so potentially protected by the Reserva de Producción Faunística Chimborazo and the Parque Nacional Cotopaxi. The only type specimen was apparently destroyed in the Berlin herbarium during the Second World War. A taxonomic revision of the genus in all the Andean countries is a prerequisite for an accurate assessment of the species' conservation status.
