It resembles the recently described C. sozenii, but clearly differs from it in flower color, morphology and chromosome number. A full description, detailed illustrations, photographs of metaphase, and SEM micrographs of seed-surface sculpturing pattern are presented. IUCN threat category and observations on the population are presented.
