Abstract

Amit Kumar Tripathi*, Jyoti Kumar Sharma

Symphyotrichum squamatum (Spreng.) G.L.Nesom, is an erect herb of the Compositae family, recorded from the campus of the Shiv Nadar University, Uttar Pradesh, India. The species is being recorded for the first time from India as there are no earlier reports of its occurrence in the literature. The taxonomic description of the plant along with colored illustrations of morphological characteristics such as habit, leaf, flower, root etc. are provided for easy identification of the species in wild. As the plant is known to have a tendency to spread rapidly, it may become an aggressive weed in India in near future.
