Walker, Colin (2021). A review of the Euphorbia schinzii complex in Southern Africa. CactusWorld, 39(1) pp. 74–75.

Abstract

The species closely related to Euphorbia schinzii (subgenus Euphorbia) are reviewed for Southern Africa by Bruyns et al (2020). These 11 species are distributed across S. Angola, N.Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, N.E. South Africa, Eswatini and S. Mozambique. They are characterised by having short, thin spiny branches that often clump freely to form large clusters. Euphorbia aeruginosa is the only species in this complex that is commonly encountered in cultivation.
