   This member of the Passifloraceae family was given this name by Hermann August Theodor Harms in 1925. It is found on Madagascar, growing in a well drained soil with some water and some sun. The stem will grow to 28 centimetres in diameter, the vines to two meters long. The flowers are greenish.

If it is sheltered from the direct sun, the caudex remains nice green.

The former A. f. stylosa is now Adenia stylosa.

The genera is named after the Yemen city of Aden. The species name after the area it was found in; Firingalave.
