Thank you so much! On another note, most of the seeds of plants look awfully similar, even when magnified.

In addition, I've seen a test from a highly competitive invitational in which the students actually had to identify a species that was a biological control/vector of an invasive.
Is this allowed? It has the potential to make tests a lot harder...
Yeah why not? It makes sense. Was it Nitidulidae? That's pretty common.
Nitidulidae is a vector for Oak Wilt, correct?

It was a species of bamboo--lucky bamboo. It was a vector of an invasive, apparently.
What was the invasive out of curiosity? I've never heard of Lucky Bamboo before this.

And now I'm feeling even more underprepared :(
EDIT: I can now conclude that the seeds of plants of the invasives are, for the most part, drastically different.

Are there any like poisons that cause Brazilian Peppertree and Chinese Tallow to be harmful? If so what are they?

Was this posted in the wrong place? Like others in the Cashew family Peppertree its sap is poisonous. Don't eat raw cashews. Srsly. Chinese tallow's sap is poisonous to cattle and grazing animals.

No... I'm asking if there is an agent that causes the inflammation, and harm. If there is, what is its name?

I was going through the rules and its states that classification is limited to the level indicated by the National List (so binomial nomenclature), however, I have seen tests in which family or order is asked for. Am I misinterpreting the rules?

Well people have asked it on tests before, so you should know it.
