This member of the Talinaceae family was described by Urs Eggli in 1997. It is found on Madagascar, growing in well-drained soil with lots of water and sun. It is an one to two and a half meter height shrublet with a 25 centimetre stem. The flowers are white to pale pink and it seems it only can be reproduced by seeds.

The genera name means 'small Talinum'. The species name means 'thick foot', for the swollen root.
