|Current Population Trend:||Decreasing|
|Habitat and Ecology:||This southern humid forest element lives as an epiphyte or lithophyte in the Mata Atlântica.|
|Use and Trade:||This species is not used or commercialized.|
|Major Threat(s):||This cactus is threatened by habitat loss in the northern parts of its range, and it is probable that it has vanished from many of the northern localities where it had been collected in the past. The main threats are human sprawl, expanding agricultural areas, and general deforestation.|
