Digitaria aequiglumis (Poaceae), a new weed for Western Australia
LEPSCHI, B.J. AND MACFARLANE, T.D.
Digitaria Haller is a cosmopolitan genus represented in Western Australia by 15 indigenous and four introduced species. In early 1996, the first author collected a weedy Digitaria (Lepschi & Lally 2486) on the northern outskirts of Perth which did not match any Digitaria species so far recorded from Western Australia. Subsequent examination of the collection by the second author revealed the plant to be D. aequiglumis (Hackel & Arechav.) Parodi, a South American species sparingly naturalized in eastern and southern Australia (Webster 1984).
