Dear All
This cactus plant is quite tall and well branched. I have phjotographed a similar one earlier at Rishi Valley, near Madanapalle and the flowers in that were rather big. Plant profile was identical. So i was surprised to see this plant producing such small flowers.
 Another plant growing close by did not have flowers but had a large number of snails hibernating on them.
If the group is interested i can post that photo too.
Please identify this xeophyte
Place : As mentioned in the earlier mail, 2 kms from the eastern coast of kanykumari.Taken this month.

Thanking all of you in advance

This is a Euphorbia species of some sort, not a cactus. Do you have a picture of the entire plant to assist in ID?

Here is the image of the entire plant. Since it was growing in between an asclepedia xerophyte and an agave, parts of those plants are also visible in the image.
Would love confirmation of id if possible at sp. level.
best wishes
and thanks
