What is this pink angiosperm photographed in Morocco in spring? The diameter of the flower is about 2 cm. The petals are fused. The plant is crawling and did not have any erect parts. enter image description here

    $\begingroup$ Could be some kind of Convolvulaceae $\endgroup$ – Arsak Apr 16 '18 at 12:08
  • $\begingroup$ It does indeed look a bit like bindweed. I hope to get a genus. $\endgroup$ – charlesdarwin Apr 16 '18 at 12:24

This is a species of morning glory (fairly obvious from the flower). It is a member of the angiosperm family Convolvulaceae. The flower and the leaves together identify it as Convolvulus althaeoides. It is a Mediterranean native. Links provided.
