euphorbia notoptera perhaps
last week (7.10.12) in mahabeleshwar
saw a single plant clinging to a stony ledge
tiny pink flowers
would very much appreciate a confirmation

As per F. B. I. v. 247., E. notoptera Boiss have linear-oblong leaves, like (herbarium KEW) –

This is probably Euphorbia elegans Spreng. The overlapping of upper leaves almost concealing the cyathia is characteristic of this species and not of E. notoptera. However, the entire plant is not visible to see whether the lower leaves are distantly placed or not.

This small Euphorbia herb was spotted on Fort Purandar in post rainy season. Size of the herb 6-10 inches.

Euphorbia Sp.??120210PKA1 : 5 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (1).

Came across this herb at Gothane (Marleshwar region).
Looks like some sp. of Euphorbia. Leaves were missing.
Requesting help for ID.


This may be a drying plant of E. concanensis, the right season being October.


I agree with … view.
the leaves are missing, and the upper leaves have become more reddish due to harsh (dry) condition.


I think this will be Euphorbia elegans Spreng. as per images and details herein.


I agree with E. elegans.
