Eragrostis curvula has become naturalized in parts of the United States (Fairbrothers, 1960), and although it and other African lovegrasses can reduce native biodiversity in the U.
Eragrostis curvula probably has chemical attributes similar to those of the native hosts of planthopper species in the local pool.
suggests that these species also use Eragrostis curvula as a host.
