Arabian Jointed Glasswort (Suaeda vermiculata)

Erissel – the east-cape of Socotra, is the only place I have encountered this species. It’s a specialist that is able to thrive in the windswept and salty environment nearest to the ocean.

It is a colony of plants in different stages of growth and age, ranging from deeply reds and oranges, to vibrant waxy blu-green. This specimen is surrounded by Zygophyllum qatarense.

Native range is Canary Islands, southern Mediterranean to Sahara and Arabian Peninsula, India, Sri Lanka.
