This member of the Rubiaceae family was given this name by Camilla Rose Huxley and Matthew H. P. Jebb in 1991. It is found in Morobe: Wau in Papua New Guinea, growing as an epiphyte with quite some water and some sun. The flat caudex can grow to 30 centimetres in diameter, twelve centimetres high. The one or even three un-branched stems can teach 45 centimetres. The flowers are white to greenish white, the fruits are yellow-orange.

Huxley & Jebb's key to the Anthorrhiza genera can be found on the Anthorrhiza areolata page.
