A liana endemic to the dry coastal forests of Ecuador's Guayas province. Described in 1937 from a specimen collected in 1933 and destroyed in the Berlin herbarium during the Second World War. Only two populations are known, neither of them inside Ecuador’s protected areas network. One population in Capeira is threatened by severe fragmentation of its habitat. Apart from habitat destruction, no specific threats are known.
