This member of the Passifloraceae family was given this name by Joseph Marie Henry Alfred Perrier de la Bāthie in 1940. It is found in south western Madagascar, growing in a well drained soil with some water and some to lots of sun. The caudex can grow to eight centimetres in diameter, while the plant reaches 75 or even 500 centimetres in height. The small flowers are white.

The name Adenia is derived from aden, meaning gland, and pertains to the glands found on leaves of most of the species. The species name is unclear by now. 'Single flower'?
