Euphorbia, Kalli: Some postings were referring to “Kalli” a while back, stating that it is a name used for many plants including several genera. I have tried to sort one genus: Euphorbia. “Kalli” is indeed part of the names for most species but as I have pointed out before the significant word is not “Kalli” but what is attached to it: the epithet.
For those interested I have integrated all comments into this page. Please let me know if I have forgotten a comment of yours. It is by no means completed so if you know of a scripted name matching a romanized version of it, please post it on this forum.
It is not all “gospel”, so please point out the spelling mistakes as well.
Finally if you know how to quote the string of postings related to this topic, please let me know.
I have tried to provide Tamil transcriptions for some of the existing names:
Euphorbia antisyphilitica Zucc. TAMIL : Meḻuku kaḷḷi = மெழுகு கள்ளி
Hope it helps…
Kalli is a word in tamil generally used for plants that are cacti or more Xerophytes.
Discussing: “Finally if you know how to quote the string of postings related to this topic, please let me know.”
At 4th point, if you were to select your own (original) post, the link associated would be for the entire thread.
Thank you to all respondents. I have made all the corrections and additions. We still need some Gujarati, Malayalam, Oriya and Telugu names. Any volunteer? It is already very good as it stands but some added scripted names in those languages would make it great.
Dachigam, J&K Flower ID request: 28May12 – SJ 1: Would appreciate the ID of this flower taken by my brother at Dachigam WLS, J&K on 20th May 2012.
Some Euphorbia sp.
May be Euphorbia cornigera
Or perhaps E. cognata now correctly E. cashmeriana, since leaves appear entire.
Not aware of the local species but the Cyathium like flowers tell it to be from Euphorbiaceae
i think if spines is prominent than E.milli may be.
E. millii is a totally different plant, being an undershrub, more or less woody and cyathium enclosed by showy bracts. This one is a herbaceous plant, common in Dachhigam.
Flora of Chakrata 2012: Euphorbia for Id: This herbaceous plant was shot from Chakrata-Budher caves road on May 17, 2012. Height about 50-60 cms, leaves in whorls around nodes…hope to get the identification…
I hope Euphorbia cognata
I was thinking about Euphorbia wallichii.
Yes looks like E. wallichii, but long hairs on ovary are unusual.
Wolfsmilch (Euphorbia) from Blindengarten in Bremen for ID 130611NB2: in the garden for blind in Bremen I saw this plant. Fotos taken on 1.6.11. The nameplate says it is Wolfsmilch (Euphorbia). I have Wolfsmilch in my garden as weed and that looks different.
Is this really Wolfsmilch (Euphorbia)? Never seen flowers with red “tentakel”. If these fotos are not enough shall try to get more fotos in the next days.
This is a Euphorbia species.

Is the plant in pic unknown2 the same as unknown and unknown1? leaves look similar but color of stem in unknown2 is red
I think the first two pictures and last (3rd) picture belongs to different species?
Are the first 2 pictures of Purslane and the last Phyllanthus sps
The plant one in the last picture is Phyllanthus sp.
Do you have a picture of the first plant in which the tip of the branch in focus?
Kindly upload pictures of different species in different threads.
I know we have to post different sp in different threads but the plant in the last picture looked similar to the other plant and I wanted to be sure that it is so. I went to take pic of the plant that I last photographed but unfortunately somebody had trampled upon but I could get a close up of similar plant near it I hope it is of help
I think this belongs to the family Euphorbiaceae.
After you identified the plant I looked up the net. Can it be Spotted Spurge: Euphorbia maculata
just out of curiosity how do you experts identify these innumerable plants so easily ? Do you know them by heart or is there some method of arriving at the correct id?
Your id may be correct.
Please check the following link for a nice picture of Euphorbia maculata.
Would it be possible for you to get a picture with inflorescence and flowers in focus.
I have tried to get pics again but this is of a nearby plant to the existing. Someone very unkindly has uprooted the plant in the pot along with this plant and has stolen the pot. It is terrible what people do I hope it helps looks quite similar to the link you have kindly provided. But I have so little knowledge. This does not show berry like fruits yet
Now, with these clearer pictures, I think this could be Euphorbia hypericifolia (Syn: Chamaesyce hypericifolia) of Euphorbiaceae family.
…, please validate the same.
… oh yes, … Euphorbia hypericifolia (syn: Chamaesyce hypericifolia) referring to the new set of images … a1.jpg AND 190920111752.jpg
In the set of images posted initially in the thread, in the third picture unknown2.jpg – seems to me a different plant in the foreground – most possibly a Phyllanthus species.
Some pictures in my photostream of Euphorbia hypericifolia ... http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=Euphorbiahypericifolia&w=91314344%40N00&m=tags
After reading on the net after identification I have found that it has a lot of medicinal properties. The info found is in Marathi we say “Dokya varun jaat ahe”. But for Botanists and experts like you it will be interesting. Thank you again for id
Is it Euphorbia erythroclada as identified in … post:
Id this Euphorbia sp.: Location – Matheran, Maharashtra.
… perhaps Euphorbia notoptera.
… has posted same flower close up in Indian flora…there also u might have seen comment as E.notoptera only..but when i tried to search on Kew site for its Herbarium sheets…i got and posted there and ask … whether your plant look same in appearance then he replied no……….this is pretty confusing to identify plants only with flower close up…..so i have requested … from next onward please click leave photo..and entire habit as well….
I have a suggestion to the photographer(s) – a genuine suggestion. I have observed photographer(s) clicking the species in dark/black background and then upload it for ID purpose. Such clicks are not sufficient for IDing the species. Such clicks not only hide the habitat but also sometimes the habit of the plant species. My request to the clicker(s) that atleast for the ID purpose please post/upload your clean and clear click without much of photography skill.
I would say people must learn from …
yes in first look i ws think its E.notoptera bt wen i saw Kew herbarium, I feel both r differ frm one another.
n snaps make confusing, bcoz second
This Euphorbia is not indigenous to India. It is an introduced plant, either from Africa or America. At present I do not recollect having seen any like this. Sent the photos to Kew. Somebody there may be able to identify.
Euphorbia Cactus for ID : Nairobi,Kenya : 311012 : AK-2: A cactus seen on 26/1/2009 in Nairobi, Kenya.
Height was about 6-8 feet.
It was really amazing to see a Sunbird make a nest in the prickles.
Euphorbia and cacti are two different animals… ()
they arise in different continents
they either have ( euphorbia) or not have (cacti) milky sap… ( that sap is often pro-inflammaotory or downright deadly)… the thorns are not truly arising out of a specific organ on the skin of the green bark…
often its an appendage to leaf… as in this plant you have
in cacti they are specific areas called areoles on the skin of the cacti that give rise to the thorns …
and I personally would like to think that the cacti thorns are very symmetrically arranged , even invoking the sunflower mathematical model of design… related to the sacred geometry…
euphorbias that I have … can have symmetrically placed thorns but no real mathematical modelling that I have seen…
most important is the sap…
the sap in some euphorbias have been used in AYURVEDIC medicine as source of strong alkali capable of cutting thru (slowly albeit) scarred walls of abscess etc…

this some one told me as kundli kiwi gadde in kannada , could some one identify this. pls mension the hindi and botanical name as well.
Interesting plant! I have not seen this. Could it be Euphorbia panchganiensis? Then it is a rare plant. I am not sure but. However it is not E. acaulis. Can you give more info…like where did u see this, did u observe any tuber, …
this one is having a tuber of length 12cm to 15 cm and 4 cm wide. this also having a male plant which is having only two leaves.
Thank you for reminding me the name.
I think it is Euphorbia decaryi which is a species of plant in the Euphorbiaceae family endemic to Madagascar. i am not sure yet bt plz refer to this plant & compare your sample. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests, subtropical or tropical dry shrubland, and rocky areas. It is threatened by habitat loss.
i previously posted for this entity
now i have collected male and female plants of this.
there have been so many suggestions for this plant. these pics will change those
To me looks like sps. of Kalenchoe, but ..
This is a Euphorbia sp. if it is indigenous and found in the wilderness in rocky habitats. As I could not make out from the mail the location, timing of photo, it is difficult to comment any more.
