There are 5 species that grow in South Sinai: F. arabica, F. burguieri, F. glutinosa, F. mollis, and F. scabra. I have a few other spottings posted and tons of other photos if you would like to cross-check, just let me know and I'll post some more.

Is this identification positive? Was it cross-checked with B.-A. Beier's "A revision of the desert shrub Fagonia (Zygophyllaceae)"? That study gives very exact descriptions of the various 34 Fagonia species. Please respond.
