Stachytarpheta indica has been regarded as an agricultural weed occurring throughout south-east Asia. In Australia, it is classified as a prospective invasive weed by the Northern Australia Quarantine Strategy (Brown et al. 2008). After examining several papers from the 1990’s, we conclude that there is no evidence to support S. indica being in this region at all and that the name has been historically misapplied to several other species of Stachytarpheta. A table of characters is provided for… Expand

Examination of both syntypes of the latter name confirms that the calyx is more or less bilobed, versus 4-toothed in S. jamaicensis, under which S. friedrichsthalii has erroneously been placed in synonymy. Expand
Systematic significance of trichomes and foliar epidermal morphology in the species of Stachytarpheta Vahl. (Verbenaceae) from Nigeria.
TLDR
The foliar epidermal surfaces, leaf venation and trichome studies of different plant parts of the three species of Stachytarpheta Vahl were studied and compared and the importance of the preponderance of these trichomes on the abaxial surface in relation to the role they play in the protection of essential oils was discussed.

Uncertainty in invasive alien species listing.
TLDR
Five tactics emerged as important for reducing uncertainty in IAS lists, and while uncertainty will never be removed entirely, these approaches will significantly improve the transparency, repeatability, and comparability of Ias lists. Expand
