   This member of the Euphorbiaceae family was given this mane by Auguste Jean Baptiste Chevalier in 1933. It is found in Benin, Burkina Faso, Ivory Cost, Ghana, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Sudan and Toga. It prefers a rather rich but still well drained soil with some water and some to lots of sun. The carrot-like root can grow to six centimetres in diameter and 30 centimetres or more long. The plant will raise up to 30 centimetres above ground, and have red flowers.
