|I found it growing along the road site. The flowers remind me of Ornamental Oregano (Oregano rotuntifolia), but the Genus 'Oregano' is not occuring in Brazil and I didn't find anything alike either in the Lamiaceae family..|

|Have you checked Euphorbiaceae Myriam?|

|Euphorbiaceae I started with before searching in the Lamiaceae family, Janet, didn't find anything there either.|

That saves me looking through the long list!
I've checked on sites I have for other families too, but not on Kew. There is a similarity to Hops so I checked Cannabaceae on Flora do Brasil, that was an easy one and can be discounted too.
There is one photo of a plant I found on another site I have in Euphorbiaceae which showed a good likeness to the stem structure...
Sapium which isn't in Brazil, but I wonder if this isn't an endemic species?

|Grrr, lost my whole post by pressing the wrong key!|
Thanks Janet, yes I can see what you mean with the likeness of the stem structure of that plant with mine.
But Sapium species seem to be all shrubs, mine was a herb, quite small, about 25-30cm, it looked adult too.
Of course it can be an exotic emigrant, especially when growing along the road side..

|It doesn't have to be Sapium sp. Myriam, but could still be in the same family due to the likeness.|

|Yes, it still could be in the Euphorbiaceae family Janet, but so far I haven't found anything alike..|

|I found it! |
It is Euphorbia comosa!

It would have been difficult to pick it from the leaves on the photo on the fielmuseum! There's a photo on wiki too ..
Thanks for the acorn Stefan, I'll plant it with the others growing under my Oak tree. ;)

|Thanks, Stefan, thanks Janet! Yes, I had seen the photo on Wiki too!|

|bloom are typical for most Euforbias|
