This member of the Peperomiaceae family was given this name by Arthur William Hill in 1907. It is only found in Bolivia, growing in a rich soil with some water and little to some sun. The plant appears to grow rather flat, only three centimetres high with a span of 20 centimetres. The up to six centimetre caudex, which sits just under the surface can be exposed. The inflorescence are green.

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

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

It might grow all year or even at wintertime, given the right conditions.
