Chamaesyce melanadenia (Torr.) Millsp.

Squaw spurge

ParentsUnknownGenus is not in the current taxonomy
GenusChamaesyceFrom ancient Greek chamai, “on the ground,” describing a type of prostrate plant
SpeciesmelanadeniaI haven’t found any specific reference to the meaning of this name, but presumably it is from the Latin melas, “black,” and aden, “gland,” which is kind of odd because one of the common names for this taxon is red-gland spurge
