This member of the
Euphorbiaceae family was described by Werner
Rauh in1992. It is found around Toliara,
south-western Madagascar, growing in a well drained soil with some water
and some sun. The caudex can grow to five centimetres in diameter,
the branches up to 50 centimetres long. The flowers are red-brown.
"sakarahaensis" comes from the
place it first was found on Madagascar: Sakaraha.
