Description (according to Praeger, An Account of the Sempervivum Group, 1932) :

Subshrubby, velvety.

Stem slender, 4 mm thick, 15 - 20 cm high.

Branches few, slender, patent, bare, with dense flat terminal leaf-rosettes.

Leaves imbricate, 4 - 5 cm long, 2.5 cm broad, rhomboidal-spathulate, pubescent, very broadly cuneate at apex, long-stalked, margin with long cilia and short glandular cilia intermixed.

Inflorescence lax, intermediate, as are the pale yellow flowers.

Distribution : Tenerife, on rocks by coast below Taganana, 450 m.

Resembles a subshrubby A. tabuliforme with less dense much smaller rosettes. The compound ciliation of the leaves strikingly recalls both parents.
