This scaled Vitaceae was described by Dinter and Gilg in 1911, but renamed by Bernard M. Descoings in 1967. Found in southern Africa, where it grows in well-drained soil, moderate water and lots of sun. The stem will get op to 80 cm in diameter and the plant reaches op to 2,5 meters. Can be reproduced both by seeds and cuttings. I got mine from Botanical Garden in Copenhagen in 2002.

Named after Jutta Dinter, one of the authors wives.
