Have you ever seen Cuscuta on Capparis?

Post by MWP admin » Mon Oct 24, 2011 12:08 pm

I have came across a Cuscuta sp. parasitizing on a poor Caper tree. Have you observed the parasite on such a host? I could not identify the species, (lack of time, no flowers) but the yellow colour is indicative of C. campestris.
