The stems are grooved, which does not happen in Dysphania pumilio.

Betty I have a 1986 publication Crop Weeds by J l Wilding, A.g. Barnett and R.L.Amor that states that the stems of Dysphania pumilo have longitudinal ridges, while teh on-line site Herbguide, which seems to be a WA flora also mentions ridges.

Dysphania pumilio is an Australian native and a weed overseas. In Florida it is called ridged goosefoot - http://florida.plantatlas.usf.edu/Plant.aspx?id=1176 has herbarium images.

I looked up Plantnet and Vicflora, neither of which mentioned ridged stems.

Went out and had a look at plants in the field all had longitudinal ridges on stems though to varying amounts

I have added extra photos 20 Feb, showing hairs on leaves and stems. Crushed leaves are aromatic, but not what I would call minty.
