   This member of the Asclepiadaceae* family was given this name by R. Peckover in 1996. It is found in South Africa, growing in a well drained soil with little to some water and some to lots of sun. The caudex can grow to eight centimetres in diameter, the slim stem up to 50 centimetres.

*This family might been incorporated in the Apocynaceae family now.
