A terrestrial herb endemic to Andean Ecuador. All known collections were recorded in an approximately 30 km² area in the paramo de Guamaní, inside the Reserva Ecológica Cayambe-Coca. The collections, made between 1976 and 1991, are from grasslands with wetlands and shrubby vegetation on the main road to Papallacta and the road to the antennas. Its tiny geographic range makes the species vulnerable to natural or human impacts. Apart from habitat destruction, no specific threats are known.
