Key characteristics

Close to C. glabrata and other species of the Tylloma group but it is distinctive because of its densely black-brown glandular hairs on the leaf surface and on the bracts of the inflorescence (Davies 2010).


Atacama and Coquimbo

It occurs between the provinces of Huasco and Choapa (28°-32°10 ' lat. S), with a mainly coastal distribution, around 500 metres above sea-level. It grows in rocks and dunes above the coast but it is scarce in the open dense vegetation. Flowers from October to April.
