An almost dormant plant by Marco Hijuelos
   This member of the Peperomiaceae family was given this name by Guido Mathieu in 2011. It is found in a tiny area in Mexico, growing in a rich soil with quite some water water and little or no sun. The caudex can grow to three centimetres in diameter and seven in length. The leaves reach 25 centimetres while the greenish flowers are a bit higher.

Discovered by Cyrus G. Pringle in 1898. The name refers to the pyramid El Tepozteco of which foot it is found.
