This member of the Aizoaceae
family was described by Wessel Marais in 1979. It is found on
Madagascar, growing in a well drained soil with little water and
lots of sun. The thickened stem can grow to three centimetres in
diameter, the little bush can grow to fifteen centimetres height and
30 centimetres in diameter. The flowers are white.
The genera name from delos;
visible' and sperma; 'seeds' as the seeds are visible in the
capsules. The species name after Jean Marie Bosser, 1922-2013, a
French botanist and agricultural engineer who worked extensively in
Madagascar and Mauritius.
