A tree endemic to Ecuador, where it has been collected in three subpopulations on both sides of the Andes. The only coastal subpopulation was collected by A. Hitchcock in 1923, near Zaruma, between Portovelo and El Tambo. One Amazonian subpopulation is on the southern slopes of the Volcán Guagua Sumaco, near Challuayacu and probably inside the Parque Nacional Sumaco-Napo-Galeras; the other is in Zamora-Chinchipe, near Jamboe Bajo, near the eastern border of the Parque Nacional Podocarpus. The species is cut to make plywoood. Apart from habitat destruction, no specific threats are known.
