A sand dune plant. Similar to, but much rarer than the common stork's-bill (Erodium cicutarium) and sticky to the touch because of an abundance of sticky-tipped hairs covering the plant's surfaces. Also called Erodium glutinosum.

All names: Erodium lebelii Jordan; Erodium glutinosum Dumort; Erodium cicutarium ssp. bipinatum auct. non (Cav.) Tourlet
