Year Published: 2004
Date Assessed: 2004-04-30
Assessor(s): Santiana, J., Cerón, C. & Pitman, N.
Reviewer(s): Valencia, R., Pitman, N., Léon-Yánez, S. & Jørgensen, P.M. (Ecuador Plants Red List Authority)
Justification:
A shrub endemic to Ecuador, where it is known from three populations in dry coastal forest. H. Eggers collected the type in Manabí province in 1893, at an unknown locale. The two other records are from Capeira, located at km 21 of the main road from Guayaquil, and from an unknown locale of Esmeraldas province (Webster in Jørgensen and León-Yánez 1999). No recent records exist, but the species may occur in the Chongón-Colonche mountains and in areas with similar habitats. No specimens of this species are housed in Ecuadorean museums. Apart from habitat destruction, no specific threats are known.
