Stinkweed discovered at Point Mugu

October 27, 2016. Several small populations of Stinkweed were detected on Naval Base Ventura County Point Mugu in the old Public Works yard. This invasive plant had not been spotted since 2011, when Greg Omori found it on Mugu. There are no other reports of this species in Ventura County, but occurs along the coast in San Diego and has been recorded once in Los Angeles County, as far as Southern California goes. Spreading through soil and gravel, this species is mostly found in disturbed areas, roadsides, sandy/gravelly lots, or other heavily constructed areas.
