Description:Distribution and Ecology - VENEZUELA. Bolivar: Altiplanicie de Nuria, Steyermark 89313.
As Ducke^24 points out, this species is much commoner than the few extant exsiccatae suggest. The paucity of collected material is probably a reflection of the very brief flowering period in April, during the period of most intense rainfall. The cited collection is a new record for Guiana.
