Chamaesyce melanadenia (Torr.) Millsp.
Euphorbia melanadenia Torr.
|Parents||Unknown||Genus is not in the current taxonomy|
|Genus||Chamaesyce||From ancient Greek chamai, “on the ground,” describing a type of prostrate plant|
|Species||melanadenia||I 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|
