Key characteristics

Closely related to Ribes cucullatum (and treated in synonym by some authorities) but differs by its leaves being coarsely serrate (rarely trilobed); the flowers can be solitary or borne in axillary clusters, (with long stalk, 2-6 mm) and tubular, forming a chalice with lobes of 2.5 mm long (Garcia, 2010).



Distribution and habitat

Very infrequent in the Coastal Cordillera where it forms part of the mattoral vegetation on slopes with Discaria trinervis and Adesmia resinosa between 200 and 2100 m above sea level.
