This plant was only discovered in 1997 and is a local endemic of the Island of Gran Canaria. Has been discovered by my friends Prof. Marrero, Prof. Almeida and Prof. Gonzales. The plant is extremely rare and highly endangered. Only known from Gran Canaria in the Barranco de Arquineguin, Barranco de Mogan and in Los Vicentillos.
