A subshrub or shrub endemic to the western slopes of the Ecuadorean Andes, where it is known from three subpopulations. Two collections are from the Río Guajalito private reserve, another from the Maquipucuna private reserve and the last one in an undetermined locale. Not confirmed inside Ecuador’s protected areas network. The species' holotype was apparently destroyed in the Berlin herbarium during the Second World War, but an isotype survives in the QPLS herbarium. The neotype Jaramillo and Zak 7737 was unnecessary, since a duplicate of the original type collection occurs in the QPLS herbarium. Apart from habitat destruction, no specific threats are known.
