Stable URL: http://dx.doi.org/10.3372/wi.43.43101 After the rearrangement of the system of Euphorbia subg. Esula Pers., E. sect. Chylogala (Fourr.) Prokh. contains four species: E. alaica (Prokh.) Prokh. (mountains of Middle Asia), E. heteradena Jaub. & Spach (Southwest Asia), E. retusa Forrsk. (deserts of North Africa and Southwest Asia) and E. serrata L. (West Mediterranean).

Koch, E. megalantha Boiss. and E. megalantha var. denticulata Boiss.
