Echinocystis lobata is an annual vine native across North America. It is found in forty-one U.S. states (excluding only California, Nevada, Hawaii, and Alaska; and most of the far Southeastern states); and nine Canadian provinces.
"Wild cucumber" is a very common vernacular name for two different plants:
- the annual plant, native to northern states and Canada — "Echinocystis lobata"
- the perennial plant, native to southern California and Baja California (Mexico) — "Marah" species.
Some authors include the genus Marah (manroots) within the genus Echinocystis.
