AbstractMercurialis canariensis Obbard & S. A. Harris is an endemic plant recently described from the Canary Islands (OBBARD et al., 2006b: 103). This taxon went undetected until recently, having been included within the variability of the Mercurialis annua sensu lato complex (HANSEN & SUNDING, 1993:170; STIERSTORFER & GAISBERG, 2006).
The authors who had previously dealt with the flora of the island El Hierro had only indicated M. annua, a polymorphic taxon which presents different ploidy levels, a fact which made it difficult to recognise the newly-proposed taxon, and justifies its lack of recognition up to the present day. Apparently, both M. annua and M. canariensis are found in the Canary Islands. Before carrying out our work, no specimens from El Hierro were investigated or located in Herbaria.
