A cosmopolitan species of uncertain origin, now naturalized in NT, CYP, NEQ and southwards as far as Victoria. Altitudinal range from near sea level to 1200 m. Grows in disturbed areas in rain forest.

Natural History

This species has medicinal uses. (http://www.amazon-medic.co.uk/database/data/Picao preto.html)

An infusion of the plant, sometimes of the flower-heads only, has been used in domestic medicine in several countries for diarrhoea, dysentery and coughs; the tannin content provides an astringency which would be of some use in those complaints. Cribb (1981).
