This member of the Vitaceae family was
given this name
Bernard Verdcourt in 1986. It is found in
Kenya, growing in a well drained soil with some water and some
sun. The caudex can grow to 30 centimetres or more, the vines will
reach four metres or more.
Seems to be some
confusion around the name and origin. IPNI has C. p.
Bernardas Verdcourt 1985 as an
Kenya species, and again in IPNI: Bernard M. Descoings has
named it as
Cyphostemma pachypus in 1964, and then as
Cyphostemma jiguu in 1986 by
