Useful for identification and comparison. Common in invasive species communities. It spreads very rapidly both in open and closed areas, in dry or humid areas.

It is able to colonize large areas very quickly.

It was observed in all regions of the island of Grande Comore up to m altitude. Very common species on the wet eastern side of the island. This species, disseminated by birds, infests clidmeia edges of fields and canals, uncultivated land and sometimes old plots of “tavy” shifting cultivation. Weed very common in the humid part of the island, in the sugar cane fields, uncultivated land and pastures for deer.


This species, very shade tolerant emerged in the s in the rainforests of low altitude of Southeast Reunion and in the vanilla plantations at the same time with Pycnonotus clidemiz Bulbulwhich is the main disseminator. It then spreaded largely throughout the island in culture as well as in natural environment. Suzanne and rarely between Saint-Joseph and Saint-Pierre.

A weed common and abundant in the uncultivated lands and very inconvenient for development with the manual hurta such as Lantana camara.

Its frequency and abundance in annual crops are relatively low. A weed with low to medium harmfulness, except when present in large numbers in the sugar cane fields.
