A terrestrial herb endemic to Andean Ecuador, where it is known from two populations. One is on the slopes of the Volcán Antisana, in the Reserva Ecológica Antisana, and the other is in the high paramos of Volcán Chimborazo, in the Reserva de Producción Faunística Chimborazo. Considered Vulnerable due to its limited distribution but may occur in other paramos, like Cotopaxi, and around Antisana. Apart from habitat destruction, no specific threats are known.
