    Distribution

    Anthurium iltisii is endemic to Ecuador, occurring rather widely on the western slope of the Andes at (250-)400-700(-1,000) m, in Tropical moist forest and Premontane wet forest life zones. Most collections have been made from the region of EI Centinela NW of Patricia Pilar in Pichincha Province at 600-700 m or in the Alto Tambo region in Esmeraldas but other populations are known from Cotopaxi Province, W of EI Corazon along the RIO Guapara at 250 m, in the region of the ENDESA Reserve along a tributary of the RIO Guayabamba with a disjunct population well to the NW at 500 m elevation and in the Mache-Chindul Ecological Reserve at the Bilsa Biological Station. It is to be expected in some of the intervening areas, especially in Imbabura Province.
