Three are on the Loja–Zamora road, in the northern part of the Parque Nacional Podocarpus, two at the Nudo de Sabanilla, on the Yangana–Valladolid road, and one from Morona-Santiago province, between Pailas and El Pan, recorded in 1943. The species was last collected in 1990. Possibly occurs in the Parque Nacional Podocarpus and maybe in the Parque Nacional Sangay. Considered "Rare" by the IUCN in 1997 (Walter and Gillett 1998).
