This annual plant with a wide palaeo- and subtropical distribution is present as a weed in Sardinia and Sicily (since a long time no longer found in the Pontine Marshes in the Lazio, and in Calabria at Anja and Mammola). It grows in rather disturbed damp places, on muddy, sometimes weakly saline soils, exclusively along the coast. The species is very rare on the edge of the Sardinian temporary ponds. The genus name is the Greek name of a plant mentioned by Theophrastus and then by Pliny; the species name refers to the shape of the leaves, which are vaguely similar to those of the genus Lotus. Flowering time: July to October.



Italian name(s): Mollugo lotoide (Italia)
