Its distribution occurs along the old stock routes that lead from the inland pastoral areas to what was previously the main port; it is thought to have been introduced with fodder for livestock around Gilbey, Many of these species also include Rumex as host plants.

Germination reproduction and interference in the amphicarpic annual Emex spinosa L. In Australia where both species have occurred sympatrically in several locations for more than 30 years Putievsky et al. The leaves are plain in shape, resembling spinach.

These symptoms were referred to as “doublegee decline” but were later found to be caused by an aphid, Brachycaudus rumexicolens, thought to be native to North America and an insect that was not intentionally introduced into Australia Berlandier and Scott, ; Scott et al.
