Chamaesyce stictospora

A mat-forming species with the cyathia born on short, dense adaxial stems. Distinguished by having pilose (often densely so) stems and leaves, and ovaries with appressed pubescence. The specific epithet is sometimes spelled "strictospora", apparently in error.

Cyathia in the Gallinas Mts., near the border of Lincoln and Torrance Counties, New Mexico, 10 Sep 2006.
