This member of the Aizoaceae family was given this name by
Martin Heinrich Gustav Schwantes in 1926. It's from the Cape Province in South Africa, growing in well-drained soil with little to some water and lots of sun. The caudex grows to 3,5 centimetres in diameter, the plant  to eight centimetres height. The flowers are bright pink.  

The genera name from the Greek thirix; 'hair' and diadema; 'band around the head', referring to the crown of bristles on the leaf tips. The species name means 'compact' for the growing form.
