   This member of the Burseraceae family was given this name by Townshend Stith Brandegee in 1891. It is found on Baja California, Mexico, growing in a well drained soil with some water and lots of sun. The stems only grow to fifteen centimetres - a bit slim for a true caudiciform - and the bush will eventually reach three and a half meters height. The small flowers are greenish yellow or crème coloured.

Named after: Joachim Burser, German/Danish botanist (1583-1639).
