Abstract

A purslane cultivar from Cyprus, previously referred to as Portulaca sativa, is recognised as a separate microspecies and described as a species new to science, which is so far also known from Turkey, Lebanon and Sudan. It differs from P. sativa by its seed surface ornamentation and from the wild P. rausii by its larger seed size.
