Interestingly, in tropical Fiji Smith (1985) describes stems as ‘rarely exceeding 50 cm’ and plants as ‘comparatively large, with prostrate or repent stems up to 50 cm long’, which suggests that main stems or lateral shoots or both may be longer in warmer climates.

In the southwestern USA and Mexico, Nesom (2009) presented a key for distinguishing between O. corniculata and the North American native species O. albicans, O. californica, O. dillenii, O. pilosa and O. stricta. O. corniculata has stolons which can root at the nodes and thus spread the plant clonally. (Plantas indeseables en los cultivos Cubanos)., 240 pp. Glossary of Indian medicinal plants.

Nondiscrimination Statement. Researchers around the world are investigating approaches for controlling Bermuda buttercup. The seeds of O. corniculata are sticky and adhere to objects on which they land. Bermuda buttercup was first noted in California in the San Francisco Bay region and has since spread throughout most coastal counties, the coastal range, and into the Central Valley. Creeping woodsorrel (Oxalis) is more prostrate, frequently roots at the nodes and often has leaves with a purple tint, unlike Oxalis stricta. http://www.theplantlist.org.

O. corniculata itself is very variable in form and its wide geographic distribution and its long journey, if Eiten’s (1963) idea is true, from Australasia to South America and then far beyond, resulted in this species spawning other species along the way, many of which have characteristics in common with their possible parent species.
