Euphorbia (Milii) Antafikiensis is a beautiful spiny Euphorbia species from Madagascar that is so far known exclusively in cultivation. To the broad "Euphorbia public" it is generally known as Euphorbia Antafikiensis, even though this name has not yet been officially described. As the specific name suggests, this species is thought to have originated from a previously unmapped locality called Antafik in Madagascar.

Did you know that?
The botanical name Euphorbia is derived from Euphorbos, the Greek physician from the 1st century AD. In 1753, the botanist and taxonomist Carl Linnaeus named the entire genus Euphorbia in honour of this doctor.
And yes, that's right, euphorbias are not cacti, even though many of them look pretty much like a cactus.
