Description & Remarks

Euphorbia forsskalii is known from a few sporadic records at the Arava- and Dead Sea Valleys. In November 2008 Shir Vered collected several specimens at the “science town” of Nes Tziona, and sent me one for verification. When checking the 1 x 05. mm seeds with dissecting scope, one of the seed ribs displyed the evident identity of the plant. Shallow parallel grooves travers the ribs. I went to the collection site near Nes Tziona, by the end of December 2008, and easily found several specimens of E. forsskalii. It was growing in ornamental plots irrigated by trickle pipes. It is growing together with Euphorbia hirta specimens, and I recommend re-reading the note you can view with the link : “Flower Talk 4” I wrote there about changes in pairs of Euphorbia from the Section Chamaesyce. At the beginning of summer 2009 I found that this Euphorbia is the most common plant growing along the irrigation trickle pipes of municipal gardens along Yaffo street, between Eged main bus station and Mahaneh-Yehuda.
