   This member of the Amaryllidaceae family was given this name by Deidré A. Snijman in 1994. It is only found in Dornbosch near Clanwilliam, South Africa, growing in sand with little water and lots of sun. The bulb will grow to five centimetres, the plant to four. The flowers are white.

I saw this tiny plant in South Africa, and was told by Graham Williamson it was a Strumaria unguiculata.
