Genus: Cuscuta — dodder

When identifying species of Cuscuta, use fresh material. Dried specimens are much more difficult to work with unless you keep notes on the diagnostic characteristics of the flower parts before they are pressed. References: Yuncker (1932), Costea et al. (2006a, 2006b, 2006c).
