|Taxonomic Notes:||Voucher: Miller 16128 (E).|

|Reviewer(s):||Abuzinada, A.H. & AL-Eisawi, D.M.H. (Arabian Plants Red List Authority)|
Known only from a few scattered populations growing near freshwater springs and seepages on the southern limestone escarpment. There are very few of these springs and therefore the total number of plants is likely to be very low. This habitat is extremely vulnerable to water development and thus a designation of Endangered seems appropriate. (cf. Exacum socotranum, Erythoxylum socotranum and Scaveola socotraensis).

|Habitat and Ecology:||
Hanging on limestone cliffs. Altitude of 50–150 m.
Shrub with fleshy, whitish green leaves and pink flowers. Found only on vertical rock faces around springs and seepages. In the likelihood of these springs being developed they may even warrant Critically Endangered status. (cf Helichrysum sp. nov., Exacum socotranum, Scaveola socotraensis, Erythroxylum socotranum).
