Botany
Portuguese term or phrase: tresmalidas
This is from a article on the flora and fauna of the Algarve region of Portugal. It is possible that the word is incorrectly spelled in the original, as neither google nor yahoo come up with any hits at all. The sentence reads as follows: "Numerosas espécies de aves convivem nestas paragens calmas, em perfeito equilíbrio com o sistema dunar e a sua flora de *tresmalidas*, barrilha-espinhosa e eruca-marítima".
