A Brazilian beauty with short, oblong leaf segments that have crenate margins and prominent veins that terminate in branching between the crenations. Pendant, it makes a very full, shrubby cluster. The flowers, borne singly or in pairs, are small but spreading, white to yellowish-green and fruits white. We have seen this species growing in coastal forests near Cabo Frio north of Rio de Janeiro, but it is also reported to grow in the dunes of seaside restinga.
