   This member of the Tecophilaeaceae family was described by Nicolaas Joseph von Jacquin in 1791. It is found in the heights of south-western South Africa, growing in a well drained soil with quite some water and not that much sun. The bulb will grow to three centimetres in diameter, the whole plant up to 40 centimetres height. The flowers are from almost white to pink.

 Seen as a member of the Amaryllidaceae family.
