Going back for a closer look of devil's hair ( Cuscuta spp).

Split rolls? - Cat tails


'I salute you...'

Accidentally came across the devil's hair( see image i took a few weeks ago above) write up in a chinese medical book! To further aid in ID i revisited the site
to have a better foto showing the flowers.

Going for closer look at the tiny parasite flowers of Cuscusta species.
It was hot and i have to withstand the needle sharp
spikes from the nearby sea holly.
Click above image to have a
closer look and compare with this orange red Cuscuta europaea.
