Justification:
A shrub endemic to Ecuador, where it is known from three subpopulations. The type was collected in 1918 near Cuenca by J. Rose, who also collected the species near Saraguro; another collection was made in Cañar province by M. Giler in 1945, between Tambo and Suscal. Not known to occur inside Ecuador’s protected areas network, but may occur inside the Parque Nacional Sangay and Parque Nacional Cajas, since it has been collected nearby. Considered Endangered due to deforestation, fires and conversion of forests to croplands over the last century. No specimens of this species are housed in Ecuadorian museums.
