Found in semi-karoo vegetation and endemic to South Africa, Stomatium mustellinum is a perennial, clump-forming succulent plant. It has 4-6 pairs of small leaves on short branchlets. The two leaves of a pair are often unequal, narrowly triangular and keeled or boat-like towards the apex. Where the lower surfaces approach the upper surface they sometimes form a chin-like point. The leaf margins and keel have broad "teeth" but this characteristic is variable and less prominent in some plants. The grey-green succulent leaves are rubbery, pliable and reptilian to the touch. The leaves are about 30-40 mm long and 10-20 mm broad.

The flowers are solitary on short peduncles without bracts. They are about 30 mm in diameter with many very fine, yellow, narrow and linear, radiating petals surrounding a cluster of stamens in the centre. The calyxis cup-shaped or tubular. The fruit is a capsule with 5 or 6 seed chambers or locules with winged, expanding keels. Seeds are fine, light brown and about 1 mm in size. Stomatium mustellinum is summer-flowering.
