Distribution and habitat
Very infrequent in the Coastal Cordillera where it forms part of the mattoral vegetation on slopes with Discaria trinervis and Adesmia resinosa between 200 and 2100 m above sea level.
Closely related to Ribes cucullatum (and treated in synonym by some authorities) but differs by its leaves being coarsely serrate (rarely trilobed); the flowers can be solitary or borne in axillary clusters, (with long stalk, 2-6 mm) and tubular, forming a chalice with lobes of 2.5 mm long (Garcia, 2010).
