This member of the Malpighiaceae family was given this name by August Heinrich Rudolf Grisebach and Anders Sand° ěrsted in 1853. It is found in Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua and Panama, growing in a well drained soil with quite some water and lots of sun. The caudex might grow to 40 centimetres in diameter, the entire plant perhaps to six metres in height. The flowers are yellow.

The genera name from Greek stigma; 'thorn' or 'point' and phyllon; 'leaf'; referring to the broad, leafy stigma. The species name means 'rounded and notched tip' for the leaves.
