   This member of the  Asclepiadaceae* family was described by Nicholas Edward Brown in 1907. It is found in Angola and Zimbabwe, growing in a well drained soil with some water and some to lots of sun. The caudex might grow to 30 centimetres or more, the vines to one or two meters.. 

*This family might been incorporated in the Apocynaceae family now.
