Description: A rare stem parasite growing on only a single species of Euphorbia - E. polygona. Most of the plant consists of branching haustoria within the host plant. The visible portions consist of minute stems with a single 0.5mm internode and a whorl of 2 or 3 scale leaves (both photosynthetic, hence a hemiparasite) and a single inflorescence. Each inflorescence has 2 or 3 scale-bracts at the base, in the axils of which other cymules may arise. The whole inflorescence may thus be rather congested. The fruit is a smooth, red, globose berry 8-9mm in diameter.
