A tree endemic to Amazonian Ecuador. Grows on alluvial soils, in swamps and on hilltops; sometimes common. Protected inside the Reserva de Producción Faunística Cuyabeno, the Parque Nacional Yasuní and the Jatun Sacha private reserve. Considered Vulnerable by the IUCN in 1997 (Walter and Gillett 1998). However, intensive inventoriies in the Parque Nacional Yasuní suggest a population there of more than 200,000 individuals (N. Pitman et al., H. Romero-Saltos et al., R. Valencia et al., unpublished data). Additional populations may occur in the Peruvian and Colombian Amazon. Apart from habitat destruction, no specific threats are known.
