   This member of the Moraceae family was described by Heinrich Gustav Adolf Engler in 1902. It is found in the Southern part of Africa (Somali, Kenya, Ethiopia), growing in well-drained soil or grit. Not so much water, but lots of sun. The caudex will grow to six centimetres in diameter, the leaves only reaches for five centimetres. It's flowers are reddish-brown, and seeds are the only way of reproducing.

Seen on IPNI as a Urticaceae.
