   This member of the Euphorbiaceae family was given this name by Ethelbert Blatter and F. Hallbergin 1921. It is found in the Western Ghats of South-West India, growing in a well drained soil with some water and some to lots of sun. The buried caudex can grow to 20 centimetres in diameter and 40 centimetres long. The short branches are almost buried too, and the plant only raises to eight centimetres while the inflorescence reach 18 centimetres. The flowers are pinkish to reddish.

 As seen on Soumen Aditya's photos of wild plants, the leaves vary in colouration.
