This is a prostrate herb rarely found in dry areas in Eastern ghats, Euphorbia deccanensis V.S.Raju; I wish to share this with you.

It more or less agrees with Euphorbia deccanensis V.S.Raju. The only difference noticed is that the leaves are broader than usual.

Please help to identify this small herb growing in Rao Jodha Park in Jodhapur……

… some species of Euphorbia.

This is most probably E. deccanensis V.S. Raju (syn.: E. linearifolia Roth), but the leaves are larger.


Requesting a correction in Euphorbia page

As per a very recent paper in Taxon,
Euphorbia deccanensis V.S.Raju is a superfluous name of E. linearifolia Roth.
Please look at the attachments.
