A shrub or subshrub endemic to Ecuador, where it occurs in lowland forest on both sides of the Andes. The original description is from a collection in coastal Esmeraldas province, but most of the collections are from near the Amazonian Reserva de Producción Faunística Cuyabeno. It is possible that the specimens from Cuyabeno represent a different species, and before a IUCN category is assigned a taxonomic review is necessary. Apart from habitat destruction, no specific threats are known.
