Status rationale for Ronnbergia campanulata: A terrestrial bromeliad endemic to Ecuador where it is known only from the type, found in the northwestern Cordillera del Cndor above the Ro Zamora. No other collections have been made since 1972. Until new subpopulations appear, the species is considered Endangered because its geographical range is potentially confined to the Cordillera. The principal threats are deforestation produced by colonization, timber extraction and mining. No specimens of this species are housed in Ecuadorian museums. Habitat destruction is the only known threat to the species.

Threats for Ronnbergia campanulata: 1.3.1
