A subshrub endemic to Ecuador's dry coastal forest, where it is known only from the type specimen collected by C. Dodson in 1981. Discovered in the Capeira forest, at km 21 of the Guayaquil–Daule road. Could potentially occur in similar vegetation remnants and expected in the Reserva Ecológica Manglares-Churute. Apart from habitat destruction, no specific threats are known.
