Justification:
A terrestrial herb endemic to Ecuador's coastal lowlands, where it has been collected at least four times. The species has been recorded twice at the Hacienda Piedad, 5 km north of Balzar, and once on the Chone–Santo Domingo road. No locale information are available for the Loja collection. The species has not been collected in the last 20 years and is considered Endangered due to the large-scale destruction of coastal forests in the twentieth century. Could occur in the Parque Nacional Machalilla. No specimens of this species are housed in Ecuadorean museums. Apart from habitat destruction, no specific threats are known.
