Range Description

This species is endemic to Bragana in Portugal and was described by Sampson in 1936 from specimens collected in 1932 by F. Mendona. It was never found again despite extensive surveys in 1990 and 1996. There are suspicions that E. mendoncae is in fact a different species and Flora Iberica treats it as a synonym of E. minima Jacq. ex DC. (Castroviejo et al. 2009).
