Pls ID this shrub commonly seen at Gokak in July on a rocky hill in association with Euphorbia shrubs. Its a low spreading densely branched armed shrub. Leaves are opposite, elliptic and about 3 cm long. Except the leaves and habit other characters match Catunaregam.

Dear Ajinkya and Tanay,

Yes, it looks like the plant I mentioned but there are more
differences than similarities. I have not seen Catunargam spinosa with
small elliptic leaves and plant densely matted on ground. Height of
the plant would be just 60 cm. Has any of the members seen such a
Catunaregam plant? Regards, Shrikant
