Commiphora habessinica, sometimes known as Abyssinian myrrh or the Yemen myrrh, is a plant native to northeast Africa and the Arabian peninsula, including DjiboutiEritreaEthiopiaZambiaMalawiOman and Yemen.[2][3]It was first described by Otto Karl Berg in 1862 as Balsamodendrum habessinicum from northeast Africa.[4] It was then transferred to the genus Commiphora by Adolf Engler in 1883, but given the name Commiphora abyssinica, an orthographical variant.[3][5] It can be recognised by its simple, serrate leaves and by the pseudo aril, covering the seed, which has four almost linear arm-like lobes.
