Significant sighting

3 Feb 2022

This is the first electronic record of this species in the Wodonga/Albury area. It is a major weed along coastal eastern Australia and important that it is controlled at this early stage of infestation before becoming a problem in this region.

User's notes

Only one plant, growing from what seems like a centre mass low to the ground

Looks like bad news, not sure how well established moth vine is in this region.

Good one chris - This is the first NatureMapr record of this species in the Wodonga/Albury area and there are no records on the Atlas of Living Australia or INaturalist. It has the capacity to become a major weed so great to get on top of it now.
