   This member of the Bignoniaceae family was given this name by Noel Yvri Sandwith in 1948. It is found in Brazil, growing in a well drained soil with some water and lots of sun. The stem can grow to ten centimetres in diameter, the entire plant to ten metres in height. The flowers are bright yellow.
