Cineraria hygrophila Klatt
Senecio anampoza Baker
Senecio hygrophilus Klatt
Cineraria anampoza is an annual to perennial plant growing 20 - 40cm tall with numerous stems that lie along the ground, rooting near the base. The plant becomes more or less woody near the base[
The plant is harvested from the wild for local use as a medicine.
Cineraria anampoza has a restricted range in Madagascar, where it only occurs in an estimated nine locations. Four subpopulations grow within a protected area and are experiencing a continuing decline in extent and quality, because of habitat degradation and destruction due to agriculture, wildfire and urban development. We project that the ongoing loss of its habitat will induce a continuous decline in the number of subpopulations and mature individuals in the next ten years. The plant is classified as 'Vulnerable' in the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species(2017)[
