This member of the Peperomiaceae
was given this name by Gustav Adolf Hugo Dahlstedt in 1900. It is found in
north-western Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela, growing in a
rich soil with quite some water and not that much sun. The caudex can grow to
two or three centimetres in diameter, the entire plant
to five centimetres in height. The flowers are greenish.
The genera name means
'pepper-like', not as to appearance but as to kinship. The species
name as it was first found in Peru.
