Range Description

An aquatic herb endemic to Ecuador, growing both submerged and above the water in black water habitats. Collected only twice in 1979, in the easternmost reaches of the Ro Yasun: in Jatuncocha and close to the community of Yasun. The size of the local subpopulations is unknown, but considering that the species forms colonies it may be locally abundant.
