Sphaerocarpium: Brugmansia vulcanicola “Zuñac”

The region in which this Brugmansia is found is an area located in the foothills of eastward slopes known regionally as the Rio Topo-Rio Zuñac basin in central Ecuador. The valley is bordered on the east by the Cordillera Abitagua, a very rich center of plant endemism with many endemic species, being mostly orchids. Though the higher parts of the Cordillera Abitagua are part of the Llanganates National Park, the rich soil middle slopes and the lower Topo-Zuñac valley are unprotected territories. The plant and wildlife are in danger of being lost due to modernization.
