Notes

In recent years' additional populations have been descovered for this highly precarious species. In 2013, a botanical survey of the pre-andean mountain range of the O'Higgins Region, discovered a new site close to the town of Requinoa (Medina & Rojas, 2018). In 2016 two new populations were descovered near to Putaendo in the Region of Valparaíso ( Cádiz-Véliz & Aliaga-Reyes, 2019).

Seed of this species is banked by the national seed bank of Chile, INIA.
