Abstract

Khaki weed (Alternanthera pungens H.B.K.) a noxious weed carrying spiny burr-like fruits has been discovered at Bunbury. This is the first time that the weed has been recorded in Western Australia although it is common in some parts of the Eastern States. A specimen of the plant was forwarded to the State Herbarium by Mr. J. N. Hutchinson, a Weed Control Officer who is stationed in the Bunbury district.
