|Scientific Name:||Dicliptera dodsonii Wassh.|
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Critically Endangered A2c; B1ab(iii) ver 3.1|
|Assessor(s):||Delgado, T. & Pitman, N.|

A terrestrial herb or subshrub endemic to Ecuador, where it is known from three collections in the Río Palenque private reserve. Gentry (1986) reported a subpopulation of one plant in the same locale and five years later Dodson and Gentry (1991) reported its death. In 1997 the species was assessed as Endangered. Critically Endangered is now warranted because the specie's apparently tiny geographical range occupies a very disturbed area outside of Ecuador’s protected areas system.
