This member of the Aizoaceae family was given this name by Harriet Margaret Louisa Bolus. It is found in Bushmanland, South Africa, growing in grit or other well drained soil with little to some water and some sun. The swollen root can grow to eight centimetres in diameter, the plant will form a pillow, 12 centimetres high and 20 centimetres in diameter, given the right conditions. The flowers are from yellow to bronze.

This is a winter-grower like the other Aloinopsis', but it seems to do fine at summer as well.
