A shrub endemic to Ecuador, where it is known from L. Sodiro's and H. Eggers' collections between Bodegas and Balsapampa at the end of the nineteenth century. May be locally extinct there, but could potentially occur in the wet vegetation remnants in Guayas province and inside the Reserva Ecológica Manglares-Churute. No specimens of this species are housed in Ecuadorean museums. Apart from habitat destruction, no specific threats are known.
