In October, 1957, a specimen of Salsola was collected in Ames, Story County, Iowa, on the Chicago and Northwestern Railroad, right-of-way embankment at the Sixth Street underpass. This new plant appeared distinct from the various varieties of the well-known Salsola kali L., and search in the Iowa State College herbarium failed to reveal other specimens. Subsequent examination of specimens of Salsola in the herbarium of the State University of Iowa likewise revealed no specimens of this species from Iowa. There seems to be no previous published reports of any species of Salsola other than S. kali from the state of Iowa.
