A herb or subshrub endemic to eastern Ecuador, where it has been recorded in eight locales. Although the species grows in frequently visited places like the Jatun Sacha private reserve and the Lago Agrio-Baeza road, there are few collections. May be frequent but never common, or may be abundant in as yet undiscovered sites. Protected in the Parque Nacional Yasuní and potentially also inside the Reserva de Producción Faunística Cuyabeno. Apart from habitat destruction, no specific threats are known.
