Cryptanthus pseudopetiolatus is found in the states of Bahia and Espírito Santo, Brazil within the coastal Atlantic rainforest within site of the beach and further inland. The species is medium green in color with an orange-red leaf petiole throughout its lifespan. The red color reaches up and out a little bit further at anthesis. The slender leaves are slightly glossy above and lightly scurfed below. A mature plant can have leaves reaching from 14 to 15 inches in length, but with only a plant diameter reaching to 18 inches, as it does not lay flat and has a more vase-shaped, upright habit. This form was collected in May of 2010 by Rafa DeFaria and Eloise Beach in the state of Espírito Santo, Brazil within site of the Atlantic Ocean upland of the beach.
