This member of the Eriocaulaceae family was described by Wilhelm Otto Eugen Ruhland in 1903. It is found in Brazil, growing in well-drained acid soil with lots of water and sun, but it won't stand too high humidity. It only reaches for 15 centimetres, the flowers are gold with white inside, and it can only be reproduced by seeds. I found mine in Tåstrup in 2003.
