Ethulia gracilis Delile (Asteraceae), a new weed record for India.

Abstract

This paper reports a new record of Ethulia gracilis in Karnataka, India. The morphological characteristics, geographical distribution, flowering and fruiting, and habitat were discussed. This exotic weed has been recorded for first time in India. Being an Asteraceae member with high percentage of viable seed production, it is likely to become an invasive weed in cultivated fields as well as fallow lands and other disturbed soils.
