[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Euphorbias do not have conventional flowers with sepals and petals but rather a structure called the cyathium usually 5-lobed with variously shaped glands alternating with the lobes; both the anthers and the ovary are on pedicels.

Euphorbia veneris is an endemic euphorbia found in the Troodos mountains above 800 m. the glands on the cyathium are short- to medium horned with the horns dilated at the apex.

Thanks, Yanni, for introducing this most beautiful endemic Euphorbia, and for doing it in such a perfect way!



P.S. Giving an idea of the size of the flower is always a good idea, even for those who know their local species of the same genus.

So perfect so elegant and unmistakable execution Yiannis Christofides! Bravo!
