Prolifically offsetting Echeveria with small rosettes. Leaves are pale glaucous green, often with pinkish tips in strong light. Flowers are bright yellow and bell-shaped with exserted stamens, with unusual features for an Echeveria (perhaps more closely allied with E. amoena and Cremnophila). Offsets by stolons to form dense, spreading mats.

Originally described in 1978 from material in cultivation in central Mexico and probably still not yet found in habitat. All cultivated plants are assumed to be clones of the original. Distributed as ISI 1388 in 1983.
