A herb or subshrub endemic to Ecuadorean paramos. Most of the collections from the four known subpopulations were made in the 1960s and 1980s around the Cotopaxi and Antisana volcanoes, in the Reserva Ecológica Antisana and the Parque Nacional Cotopaxi, where it seems to be relatively common. Also grows in disturbed areas. Classified as Rare by the IUCN in 1997 (Walter and Gillett 1998). Currently classified as Vulnerable because of the species' small range size and the small number of populations recorded. Apart from habitat destruction, no specific threats are known.
1997 Rare (Walter and Gillett 1998)
