A terrestrial herb endemic to eastern Ecuador, where it is known from two collections. The type was collected near Canelos, in the old province of Napo-Pastaza, in 1935. A second collection was made 18 years later, in the same area, in a forest 4 km east of Puyo. Nothing is known of the status of or threats to these populations, but they are not protected inside Ecuador's protected areas network. No specimens of this species are housed in Ecuadorean museums.
