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 Papua New Guinea, growing as an epiphytic in rainforests with lots of water and little to some sun. The caudex can grow to 20 centimetres in diameter but only five centimetres high, the several, branched stems grow to 35 centimetres. The flowers are white, the fruits orange.

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