Euphorbia orobanchoides, var. calycina,
This member of the
Euphorbiaceae family was described by Peter René Oscar Bally
in 1959. It is found in
Angola, Malawi, southern Tanzania and Zambia, growing in a well drained soil with some water
and some to lots of sun. The caudex can grow to five centimetres in
diameter, the whole plant up to six centimetres height - ten with the
caudex exposed. The flowers are white to light pink and green.
The genera name
from the Greek monos;
'one' and -aden; 'gland', referring to the solitary gland.
The species name means 'looking like Orobanche' for the
similarity of the flowering stems.
