Parasitic annual twiner, leafless. Stems slender, pale yellow to brown. Flowers small (less than 3mm across), tubular, with 5 lobes, in compact clusters along the stems. Poorly known Vic.
Differs from Cuscuta campestris in that the tips of the flower lobes are blunt and never flexed inwards (needs at least a hand lens to see).
