   This tiny member of the Euphorbiaceae family was given this name by Philippe Bisseret and Ernst Specks in 2007. It is found in Bale in the southern Ethiopia, growing in a well drained soil with some water and lots of sun. The caudex can grow to three centimetres in diameter, the entire plant to twelve centimetres in height. The flowers are yellowish.

Named after Michael George Gilbert, the botanist who among others have described Euphorbia gymnocalycioides.
