An annual of barish places in stabilised sand dunes. Lowland.
The map of E. lebelii in Perring & Sell (1968) was based on herbarium material. The current range is broadly similar, although the map suggests that in some areas recent recorders have not distinguished this species from the closely related E. cicutarium. Some pre-1970 records of E. lebelii could be errors for the taxonomically uncertain E. cicutarium subsp. dunense.
