   This member of the Cucurbitaceae family was given this name by Raul Martínez Crovetto in 1954. It is found in Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay, growing in a well drained soil with some water and some to lots of sun. I can't find any references to the size og the caudex, but the entire plant reach three meters in height. The flowers are yellow.
