Plant ID (center of Tunisia)

RamlaJuly 15, 2013

Hi,

Could you please help me identifying this plant?

It was collected yesterday?
It grows in clumps on hills located in the center of Tunisia.
The leaves have a very strong and disagreeable odor.
When pulled, a kind of glue is felt on the hands.

Thanx!

Could be a Cistus. They are aromatic and sticky.

Looks like a Cistus to me too.

Have to find now which Cistus is this one.
