   This member of the Geraniaceae family was given this name by Elizabeth M. Marais in 1997, replacing the invalid name; P. pulchellum. It is found in a small area in western South Africa, growing among fynbos  in a well drained soil with some water and some to lots of sun. The caudex can probably grow to three centimetres in diameter, the entire plant to five centimetres in height, fifteen with the inflorescence. The flowers are pink with two red markings.
