Biology and notes. Copestylum escomeli  is associated with coastal desert flora from the Coastal Desert province ( Morrone 2014). The species is found in shrublands at high-altitude ( Arroyo et al., 1982), and in desert bloom events. It has been associated with shrublands and flowers of H. stenophyllum  (César Martínez and Gamal Naser, CSP records); Frankenia chilensis K. Presl  (Rodrigo Barahona-Segovia pers. obs.); Balbisia peduncularis (Lindl.) D.Don  (Gabriela Germain, CSP record); Nolana crassulifolia Poepp.  (Rodrigo Barahona pers. obs.); Carica chilensis (Planch. ex A. DC.) Solms  (Ana Sandoval, CSP record); Cistanthe  sp., Tetragonia maritima Barnéoud  and Encelia canescens Lam.  in the coastal desert (R. Barahona-Segovia, pers. obs.). This species also inhabits the sclerophyllous forests of Mediterranean Central Chile.

Conservation status. LC; EOO = 209,948 km 2, AOO = 100 km 2, 22 subpopulations and 23 localities.
