This member of the Menispermaceae family was given this name by Inez Verdoorn & Georges M.D.J. Troupin in 1962. It is found in north west South Africa, northern Namibia, Zimbabwe and Botswana, growing in a well drained soil with some water and some sun. The vines will grow up to ten meters. The tiny flowers are greenish-crème coloured.

When detachment from the soil is caused by animal disturbances, it grows a survival root reaching up to ten meters down.
