This member of the Euphorbiaceae family was given this name by Robert Allen Dyer in 1934. It is found in Botswana and South Africa, growing in a sandy drained soil with little to some water and some to lots of sun. The carrot-like root can grow to two and a half centimetre in diameter and 20 centimetres long. The medusa-like branches will form a rather flat cluster, up to 50 centimetres in diameter. The flowers are greenish white, sometimes with purple markings. The plant can be reproduced both by seeds and cuttings.
