This Euphorbia apparently came from an older gentleman's collection, a 25+ year old collection of very strange and unique Euphorbs....there's a very old, plastic ID tag stuck in the dirt but I just can't make out the species. Anyone have any clues??? There are tiny leaves and possibly some flowers poking out of the top of each "finger".

Euphorbia tirucalli is a possibility.

When I Googled Euphorbia tirucalli, there were a couple that may fit the ID. The little leaves/flowers popping up might help with ID, too!

That looks like Euphorbia aphylla, Leafless Spurge.

Not a very common critter to find in home gardens. ATPs database can use your input. If there is not an entry yet, you have the material to start such.

Please put photos in the database.

Hauoli makahiki hou!

Happy Holidays!

Kate: I agree with Dave, the database could use a few photos of Tolda (Euphorbia aphylla) I just added a bit more information for the plant but we currently have no photos.
