This little member of the Peperomiaceae family was given this name by Sereno Watson in 1887. It is found in Mexico, growing in a rich soil with some water and little or no sun. The caudex can grow to two or three centimetres in diameter, and the plant up to ten centimetres height. The flowers are green

The genera name means 'pepper-like', not as to appearance but as to kinship. The species name means 'most graceful, slender'.

')Accordantly to the latest taxonomic system; APG IV 2016 is Peperomiaceae now part of the Piperaceae.
