Η Αντράκλα ή ανδράχλη ή γλυστρίδα, (επιστ. Ανδράχνη η ολησθηρίς, Πορτουλάκα η λαχανώδης), λατ. (Portulaca oleracea), είναι είδος του γένους Πορτουλάκα. Είναι γνωστό σαλατικό που φύεται άφθονα, χωρίς ιδιαίτερη καλλιέργεια κυρίως σε λαχανόκηπους. Στην Ελλάδα, σε πολλά μέρη, εκτός από τις παραπάνω ονομασίες λέγεται και αντραχλίδα, ή σκλιμίτσα, ή χοιροβότανο, ή τρευλό ή και γλυστιρίδα.

Portulaca oleracea (Common Purslane, also known as Verdolaga, Pigweed, Little Hogweed, or Pusley), is an annual succulent in the family Portulacaceae, which may reach 40 cm in height. Approximately forty varieties currently are cultivated. It has an extensive Old World distribution extending from North Africa through the Middle East (called الرجلة or البقلة) and the Indian Subcontinent to Malesia and Australasia. The species status in the New World is uncertain: in general, it is considered an exotic weed, however, there is evidence that the species was in Crawford Lake deposits (Ontario) in 1430-89 AD, suggesting that it reached North America in the pre-Columbian era.[2] It is naturalised elsewhere and in some regions is considered an invasive weed. It has smooth, reddish, mostly prostrate stems and alternate leaves clustered at stem joints and ends. The yellow flowers have five regular parts and are up to 6 mm wide. Depending upon rainfall, the flowers appear at anytime during the year. The flowers open singly at the center of the leaf cluster for only a few hours on sunny mornings. Seeds are formed in a tiny pod, which opens when the seeds are mature. Purslane has a taproot with fibrous secondary roots and is able to tolerate poor, compacted soils and drought.
