AMARANTHACEAE-CHENOPODIACEAE WEEK:  Digera muricata is a lone species worldwide in Digera genus (Amaranthaceae). It occurs as a common weed, up to 50cm tall, with wheat here in Pantnagar.


As you have described it is a lone species from the genus Digera. Occurs as a weed all over the world. I read from the key:
It comes under the major group having alternate leaves. Next….
Fertile flowers subtended by sterile modified flowers which is not the case with other genera in this group. Can you elaborate on this? Is it visible in your pictures?
I may be able to learn something…..
