  1. Thank you for the nice comment :).
    Euphorbia acanthothamnos is called γαλατόφονος on the island of Amorgos according to Miliaraki and Heldreich 1909, page 85 (Spiridonos Miliaraki, Theodor Heldreich: ΛΕΞΙΚΟ ΤΩΝ ΔΗΜΩΔΩΝ ΟΝΟΜΑΤΩΝ ΤΩΝ ΦΥΤΩΝ ΤΗΣ ΕΛΛΑΔΟΣ, Ekdosis Afon Tolidi, Reprint/Nachdruck der ursprünglichen Ausgabe von 1909 der Επιστημονική Επετηρίδα der Universtät Athen).

      Thank you very much for the reference. Does it means ‘killing milk/milk which kills’? I guess the name depends on the toxicity of the latex.

      1. Since the word γαλατόφονος is written with ο and not with ω, it is propably nothing with φωνή /voice, but with φόνος/murder , which means your proposal sounds very convincing. Stay safe and have a nice time 🙂
