Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Data Deficient ver 3.1
Year Published: 2004
Date Assessed: 2004-04-30
Assessor(s): Santiana, J. & Pitman, N.
Reviewer(s): Valencia, R., Pitman, N., Léon-Yánez, S. & Jørgensen, P.M. (Ecuador Plants Red List Authority)
Justification:
An epiphytic liana endemic to eastern Ecuador, discovered by A. Schultze-Rhonhof in 1938, near Mera. No other collections have been made since, but additional populations are expected in the nearby Parque Nacional Llanganates and the Parque Nacional Sangay. The principal threats are fires set by humans and road construction. Apparently the type was destroyed in the Berlin herbarium during the Second World War. No specimens of this species are housed in Ecuadorean museums.
