   This member of the Cucurbitaceae family was given this name by Hanno Schaefer and Susanne Sabine Renner in 2011. It is found in Thailand below 200 metres, growing in a rather rich soil with quite some water and some to lots of sun. The caudex can grow to ten centimetres in diameter, the entire plant to two to ten centimetres in height. The flowers are yellow.

Named in honour of Tem Smitinand (19201995), the Thai forest botanist, who made one of the first collections of this species.
