just checked

Mmm - maybe I need to look at my 'sun spurge' plants again. After checking in a book, I see that crescent-shaped glands are also Petty Spurge features, Sun Spurge has oval glands. Also noticed that there is a Euphorbia peplis (Purple Spurge) as well as E peplus.
Off to the garden to check...

Back from the garden

Oh. The plants in my garden are all Petty Spurge. Well, I've learnt something.
Thanks to both kevbert and cicuta (again). Ispot is a really good place to practise and improve id skills.
