The root parasite Thesium linophyllum (Santalaceae) has been detected
in the United States.  Little is found in literature about the
potential of this parasitic plant to harm agricultural or natural
areas.  Has anyone knowledge of or experience with this plant they
would share with us?  We know that it parasitizes flax in Europe,
and other species in the genus parasitize sugarcane, onions and
grains.  Any other information is welcome.  Thank you.
