A terrestrial herb endemic to Ecuador's southern Andes, where it is known from four subpopulations. The type was collected by W. Jameson in 1936 at Cerro Pilzhum. The second subpopulation was collected in 1983 inside the Parque Nacional Cajas, in the Torococha and Mazán valley. A third was found in 1990 on the Gima-Gualaquiza road, near the old mule trail to San Miguel de Cuyes, and the fourth was recorded in the paramo Castillo, on the Sevilla de Oro-Méndez mule trail. Apart from habitat destruction, no specific threats are known.
