Invasive Species Watch–Brazilian elodea and Hydrilla

Illinois Sea Grant and Illinois Natural History Survey

Egeria densa (a.k.a. Brazilian elodea or anacharis) and Hydrilla verticillata (aka hydrilla) are non-native aquatic plants invading and causing harm in our lakes, ponds and streams. These submersed plants form thick mats that hinder recreational activities such as fishing, boating and swimming. They also harm fish and wildlife by altering habitat and displacing native aquatic plants. This pocket size guide will help you identify and weed out this invasive species.
