A liana endemic to coastal Ecuador, where two populations were recorded in 1978–1980. One was found 44 km west of El Empalme on the Quevedo-Portoviejo road and the other 7.5 km west of the Río Daule. Not known to occur inside Ecuador’s protected areas network, but could occur in the Bosque Protector Poza Honda. Considered Endangered due to the drastic alteration of its habitat during the last 50 years. No specimens of this species are housed in Ecuadorean museums. Apart from habitat destruction, no specific threats are known.
