I wonder if anyone might have the old mini or dwarf zonal Mephistopheles.  The description is "Almost a replica of Black Vesuvius, but it grows about 2 inches taller, whilst the foliage is even darker."  Here is the description from that book of Black Vesuvius:  "Very slow growing, a fully grown plant will reach a height of 4 inches to 5 inches bearing scarlet flowers and bronzy-black foliage.  There is another form bearing deep salmon flowers."  Bear in mind that this is a description from England and in California it might grow a bit larger.

Anyhow, can't find it available in the nurseries and it may be lost, but also might just be lurking in someone's collection.
