General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
#3 Enemy: Bush with green grey foliage, very hard to spot in saltbush. Hides well.
Seeds last around 10 years in the soil, so long term monitoring of an infected area is required to ensure it doesn't become re-established.
