Portulaca granulatostellulata

[FSOM]

M. Thulin et al. Flora of Somalia, Vol. 1-4 [updated 2008] https://plants.jstor.org/collection/FLOS

Distribution
N1 pantropical, on Oceanic Islands but found inland in e.g. Nigeria and also extending north into the USA and to Japan.
Ecology
Near sea level to 1400 m.
Note
The material seen has a rather different, more stunted look than the normal weedy subsp. oleracea and seems to be restricted in Eritrea and Somalia to natural habitats. Danin & al. (op. cit.) recognised a total of nine subspecies, differentiated primarily on seed characters. Though the extremes are very distinct, there is much overlap in distribution and it is not certain that their scheme is practicable.

Native to:

Aldabra, Algeria, Austria, Azores, Belarus, Belgium, Canary Is., Central European Rus, Comoros, Corse, Czechoslovakia, East Aegean Is., Egypt, Eritrea, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Kenya, Kirgizstan, Kriti, Libya, Madeira, Mauritania, Mozambique Channel I, Nigeria, Palestine, Poland, Romania, Réunion, Sardegna, Sicilia, Somalia, Spain, Switzerland, Tanzania, Togo, Transcaucasus, Tunisia, Turkey, Turkey-in-Europe, Uganda, Yugoslavia

Baleares, Caroline Is., Finland, Gilbert Is., Great Britain, Guatemala, Hawaii, Marcus I., Marshall Is., Portugal, Southwest Caribbean, Sweden, Tuamotu, Wake I.
