Spanish term or phrase: lengas, guindos, nires, calafates, notros, serecios
Ocupa una superficie de 60000 hectáreas donde conviven lengas, guindos, nires, calafates, notros, flores como las orquídeas, violetas y serecios
sibila
English translation:senecio
Explanation:
Are you sure "serecio" isn't misspelled? Senecio is a genus of plant of arid ecosystems. Here is a botanical link:http://www.rbgkew.org.uk/ceb/ebinfoThis sets you up with an alphabetical list of plant genuses. Menu gen then letter, thus: munugea for genuses starting with "a." Using some phonetic history skills you may be able to surmise some of those guys, but some, like :califate," sound awfully colloquial. Sorry I can't help more. I'd like to know, too.
