Phoenix dactylifera


  • Near Ain Murr, Karkur Murr (Jebel Uweinat)
  • Ain Duarme (Jebel Uweinat)

    Outside the oases depressions, the species was only noted at two permanent water sources at Jebel Uweinat, near Ain Murr in Karkur Murr, and at Ain Duarme located in a small southern tributary of Karkur Ibrahim. In both locations, the presence of the species is probably due to introduction of date seeds by humans visiting the springs.
