A shrub endemic to eastern Ecuador, where it is known from a single collection made circa 1940. The collection locale and potential threats are undetermined. The holotype was destroyed in the Berlin herbarium during the Second World War, and no threat assessment is possible until the species' taxonomic status is clearer. No specimens of this species are housed in Ecuadorean museums. Apart from habitat destruction, no specific threats are known.
