Chenopodium probstii Aellen, 1928  

Chenopodium probstii   Mitt. Naturf. Ges. Solothurn 20(8): 56. 1928.

Distribution

TENERIFE: Los Silos, Erjos, charcas de Erjos, dried out pond, very common, but only locally, 18.11.2016, F. Verloove 12679 (BR). https://observation.org/observation/205254266/

Notes

This weed of uncertain origin (possibly North America) doubtlessly has been overlooked. It was recently reported from several localities in La Palma, for the first time in the Canary Islands, where it is considered to be naturalised and in expansion ( Otto and Verloove 2016). It differs from C. album   by leaves that are large and leathery and with a distinct purple or orange pigmentation.

It is here reported for the first time from Tenerife. In and near some dried out ponds in Erjos, it was seen in abundance in 2016. It probably also occurs elsewhere.
