A subshrub endemic to Ecuador, where one population is known from each side of the Andes. Discovered in 1975 near Baeza, on the eastern slopes, and also collected on the old Quito–Santo Domingo road, Chillogallo-San Juan-Chiriboga, Empalme km 27. Two collections are reported from the Reserva Geobotánica Pululahua, in the Moraspungo area, but they are uncertain determinations. Not known to occur inside Ecuador’s protected areas network, but new populations are expected in the Antisana and Cayambe-Coca reserves, near the type locale. Apart from habitat destruction, no specific threats are known.
