This member of the Euphorbiaceae family was given this name by Werner Rauh in 1993. It is found in southern Madagascar, growing in a well drained soil with some water and some sun. The caudex might grow to 10 centimetres in diameter, the entire plant might reach 25 centimetres in height. The flowers are unknown for now.

Actually, I have a hard time finding information on this plant.

The genera is named after Euphorbos, the Greek physician of King Juba II of Numidia. This species must be from Latin; sub; 'under' and peltata; 'shield-shaped' and phylla; leaves for the shape of the leaves.
