A fairly new species of Sincoraea published by Louzada Wanderley, native to the Chapada Diamantina area of Bahia, Brazil. A terrestrial living on rocks and stony ground near the banks of the Rio Mandassaia in full sun or under sparse shrubs. Closely resembling the more familiar Sincoraea navioides, differing mostly in flower structure and other slight morphological differences. A smaller grower to about 12 inches across with narrow leaves that turn bright red in strong light and blush redder at anthesis. The inflorescence is nidular with red bracts and white flowers. Offsets are produced on short stolons.
