  • Micranthemum callitrchoides, and micranthemoides
  • Myriophyllum mattogrossensis
  • Pogostemon erectus, P. helferi, and stellatus

These PRAs were prepared in response to a request from the Danish Plant Directorate of the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries, and will be available for comment for 30 days.
