Succowia balearica (Brassicaceae): a new and potentially serious weed in Western Australia
KEIGHERY, G.J.

In 1992 the author collected (voucher Keighery 11030) an unknown vigorous twining annual vine superficially similar to Fumaria capreolata L. (Fumariaceae), but with yellow flowers and spiny fruits (Figure 1). The plants were growing in Banksia woodland below Reabold Hill in Bold Regional Park, 8 km west of Perth. It was subsequently identified as Succowia balearica (L.) Medicus, a native of the western Mediterranean.
