This member of the Crassulaceae family was given this name by John Jacob Lavranos in 2001. It is found in two small areas in western South Africa, growing in grit or another well drained soil with some water and some to lots of sun. The caudex can grow to two centimetres in diameter, the entire plant to seven centimetres in height. That said, it can be spoiled in culture, and reach five centimetres in diameter and 25 centimetres in height. The flowers are cream to pale pink.

The genera name is an anagram of Cotyledon; a closely-related genus. The species name after Frans K. A. Noltee, a Dutch succulent plant hobbyist and nurseryman.

This is a winter-grower, but it flowers during the summer.
