Notes: This species can be recognized by it finely bullate leaves, with the venation impressed on the shiny upper surface, that are white-tomentulose below, its yellow corollas, and its habitat in montane forests. It was known to Boom (1994) only from the type but has recently been re-collected. The stem apices of non-reproductive stems or plants are unusually resinous (e.g., Pino et al 150). Isertia krausei is similar to I. reticulata; I. krausei can be recognized by its glabrous or puberulous inflorescence axes and leaves that are oblanceolate to elliiptic or elliptic-oblong, vs. densely pilosulous to strigillose and obovate, respectively.
Distribution: Southern Ecuador to northern Bolivia at 1500-2100 m.
