Myriophyllum aquaticum in the Netherlands

Myriophyllum aquaticum (Haloragaceae, EPPO List of Invasive Alien Plants) was first recorded in the Netherlands in the 1990s according to the National Database Flora and Fauna, although some herbarium vouchers, stored at Leiden, indicate an earlier presence of the species in the Netherlands. M. aquaticum is now widespread across the whole country.
