A terrestrial herb endemic to high-elevation Andean habitat in Ecuador. All the collections were recorded on the Volcán Chimborazo, inside the Reserva de Producción Faunística Chimborazo. A report from Tungurahua is actually also from Chimborazo, and a report from Azuay province is apparently based on a misidentification. Apart from habitat destruction, no specific threats are known.
