A shrub endemic to Ecuador, collected only once in 1893 by H. Eggers in dry coastal forest at his Hacienda El Recreo, near Canoa, Manabí province. Might occur in the Cordillera Chongón Colonche and in coastal dry remnant vegetation. Considered a synonym of A. cuneata by Cardiel (1995) (Jørgensen and León-Yánez 1999), which is not an endemic to Ecuador. No specimens of this species are housed in Ecuadorean museums. Apart from habitat destruction, no specific threats are known.
