This member of the Passifloraceae family was described by Hermann August Theodor Harms in 1923. It is found in Mozambique, Tanzania and Zambia, growing in a well drained soil with some water and some to lots of sun. I think the caudex can grow up to 30 centimetres in diameter, and the vines up to 2,5 meters in length. 

The leaves have a vide variety of appearances, even on the same plant.

The name Adenia is derived from aden, meaning gland, and pertains to the glands found on leaves of most of the species. The species name from the Greek words stenos meaning 'narrow' and dactylos meaning 'digit': 'Narrow fingers' for the leaves.
