This member of the Gesneriaceae family was given this name by Alain Chautems in 1990. It is found in southern Brazil, growing in a rich but drained soil with some water and some to lots of sun. The caudex can grow to 30 centimetres, the stems to 40 centimetres or more. The flowers are light red to red with a lighter interior. The leave-stalks rather short.

The genera is named after Wilhelm Sinning,1792–1874, a gardener of the Botanische Gärten der Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn. The species name means 'lined'.
