This member of the Euphorbiaceae
was given this name by Susan Carter in 1987. It is found in south-western
Kenya and northern-central Tanzania, growing in a well drained volcanic
rocky soil with
some water and lots of sun. The caudex can grow to six centimetres in diameter, the entire plant
to 30 centimetres in height. The flowers are greenish-yellow to yellow.
The genera is named after
Euphorbos, the Greek physician of King Juba II of Numidia. The

rames; 'many branches'.
