This member of the Vitaceae family was given this name by Bernard M. Descoings in 1963. It is found in Botswana, Eswatini, South Africa, Zimbabwe, growing in a well drained soil with some water and lots of sun. The caudex can grow to fifteen centimetres in diameter, the vine up to 60 centimetres or more in height. The flowers are from green to yellowish with red tips.

Cyphostemma humile subsp. dolichopus differs from Cyphostemma humile subsp. humile by its dries a darker colour, has scattered often puberulous hairs between the nerves on the under side of the leaves which are often also puberulous above, the leaves tend to be broader, the stipules smaller and the hairs on the pedicels tend to be sparser and longer. 

The genera name from the Greek kyphos; 'tumor' or ,'hump' and stemma; 'garland' or 'crown'. The species name means' of low growth'.

Fast growing vines emerges in spring.
Personally, I find the leaves to be a bit too elongated.
