Lliam comments: "It is found in similar locations as C. glaucum and indeed with it also as it favours open disturbed ground, especially next to trackways. It also seems to be associated with rabbit droppings and they keep the plants very small and prostrated. A hard plant to find but easy to identify as it really does smell absolutely revolting!!"
