It is found in south western South Africa and Namibia, growing in a well drained soil with little water and lots of sun. The caudex can grow to 3,5 centimetres in diameter, the entire plant to seven centimetres in height, 20 with the inflorescence. The flowers are bright yellow with a greenish stripe.

The genera name from From Old French coillon 'testicle'. The species is named after the location it first was found; Concordia.
