Wavyleaf basketgrass (Oplismenus undulatifolius) is a recently-introduced invasive species in the U.S. Mid-Atlantic with well-documented invasion history. Wavyleaf basketgrass was first identified in the U.S. in 1996 near Baltimore, Maryland (Peterson et al., 1999). This aggressive invader has since been identified in Virginia’s Shenandoah National Park in 2005 and subsequently spread into at least 20 counties in the state of Virginia (Figure 1) (EDDMapS, 2019; Heffernan, 2019). Wavyleaf basketgrass was also found in Pennsylvania and West Virginia in the summer of 2017, and the range continues to expand (EDDMapS, 2019).
