This member of the Peperomiaceae*
was given this name by Guido Mathieu in 2011. It is found near La Agua Colorada
in south-western Mexico, growing in a rich soil with quite some water and
little sun. The caudex can grow to 0,5 centimetres in diameter, the entire plant
to five centimetres in height. The flowers are whitish.
The genera name means
'pepper-like', not as to appearance but as to kinship. The species
name refers to the erect rachis by which the species is easily
distinguished from P.questionis.
