A terrestrial or epiphytic herb endemic to southeastern Ecuador, where it is known from seven collections. Most are from the Upano–Zamora road, between the Andes and the Cordilleras del Cóndor and Cutucú. The type was collected on the Sígsig–Gualaquiza road, between Oroyaco and El Portón. Other collections have been made on the Méndez–Morona road and along the Río Calagras. The principal threats are ongoing colonization and deforestation, and the lack of protected areas in the region. Classified as "Rare" in the 1997 IUCN Red List of Endangered Species (Walter and Gillett 1998).
