Euphorbia bupleurifolia. It is a spineless, dwarf succulent, growing 40–200 mm tall. The stem is usually unbranched, brown, bulb-like, and covered with numerous markings of scars of fallen leaves. These scars give it the look of a pine cone. The diameter of the stem is 40–70 mm. Leaves are deciduous, oblanceolate and tufted on the tip of the stem.
