A tree endemic to Ecuador's Amazonian lowlands, where it is known from two collections. The first is from an undetermined locale of Pastaza province and the second is from Añangu, near the Parque Nacional Yasuní. Potentially the species could occur in the Reserva de Producción Faunística Cuyabeno. The only type was apparently destroyed in the Berlin herbarium during the Second World War. Apparently grows patchily or at very low densities; it was not found in three quantitative inventories that examined more than 200,000 stems in the Parque Nacional Yasuní (N. Pitman et al., H. Romero-Saltos et al., R. Valencia et al., unpublished data). No specimens of this species are housed in Ecuadorean museums. Apart from habitat destruction, no specific threats are known.
