EUPHORBIACEAE FORTNIGHT:: Euphorbia for id from Panipat NS-66 : Attachments (4). 2 posts by 2 authors.
Due to efforts of the experts most of my uploads got identified, I never looked these plants so closely..largely due to lack of understanding of distinguishing features.. the prostrate Euphorbia and herbaceous Phyllanthus sp. are always confusing to me..
This one is my last Euphorbia for identification, I won't be surprised if this turns out to be a repeat upload, please bear and help to identify this species from Panipat
This is Euphorbia serpens Kunth. This species can be easily distinguished by the orbicular to oblong-ovate leaves with retuse (notched) apex.

Identification of Euphorbia sp. : 9 posts by 6 authors. Attachments (2)
I request for help in identification of the attached Euphorbia sp. It was found in Puzhal, Chennai, Tamilnadu on 16-08-2015. It is prostrate herb radiating from the stem. Leaves have brown spot. 
I think it is Euphorbia corrigioloides.
But let's wait for experts' comments.
Also check for Euphorbia maculata.
In Euphorbia maculataFruit is  1/10 inch wide, covered with short, soft incurved hairs. 
And hence it may not be E.maculata (Spotted spurge)
Could be E. corrigioloides or E. maculata; ... has ruled out the latter...
This is Euphorbia serpens Kunth, common throughout India from Kashmir to Tamil Nadu, as a weed in lawns, wastelands and roadsides.
I attach some more specimens for facilitating identification

This fits into Euphorbia serpens Kunth.

Euphorbia serpens!
I initially thought the plant to Euphorbia prostrata.
But it is lacking the typical red stems.
Requested to please validate.
