Disciphania inversa

Status rationale for Disciphania inversa: Disciphania inversa is endemic to Ecuador. First collected in 1949 near Lita and rediscovered 25 years later during the botanical inventory of the Ro Palenque private reserve. Today both forests are reduced and fragmented and neither of them is protected inside Ecuador's protected areas network. Habitat destruction is the only known threat.
