Stinking goosefoot (Chenopodium vulvaria), or notchweed, is a foul-smelling plant or weed. The plant is a member of the genus Chenopodium, the goosefoots.
Its native distribution is practically pan-European and extends eastward to Pakistan. However, it has also naturalised in Australia, California and parts of South America.
It is an annual weed of bare soil and is not tolerant of competition. It is largely found where soil has been disturbed and in waste places by the sides of roads and walls.
