Heracleum mantegazzianum is generally distinguished from H. maximum by its larger size; where flowering plants of H. maximum seldom reach over 2.0 m in height, H. mantegazzianum_ is often 2.5 to 4 m in height with lower leaves in a basal rosette between 1.5 to 2.0 m in total breadth.
Heracleum mantegazzianum was first recorded in riparian areas along French Creek in 1964 (Dawe and White, 1979) and the largest populations on Vancouver Island are still found in the surrounding area.
Heracleum mantegazzianum is also prevalent in adjacent areas of the District of North Vancouver including the lower Seymour River and roadsides near the Ironworkers Memorial Bridge and upper Wagg Creek (St. Andrews St. and Queens Ave.) and the central portion of the Mosquito Creek watershed.

 Herkulesstaude (Heracleum mantegazzianum) im GIFTPFLANZEN.COMpendium - www.giftpflanzen.com
Die willkürliche Festlegung der Völkerwanderung zur Definition von Neophyten (in anderen Quellen, etwa den unten aufgeführten Büchern, wird der Beginn der Neuzeit zur Definition herangezogen) verdeutlicht diesen Sachverhalt.
Inwieweit wir uns von den Neubürgern bedroht fühlen, hängt im wesentlichen von der Spezies ab: So begegnet man der Nachtkerze (Oenothera biennis) und dem bizarren Tintenfischpilz (Clathrus archeri) weniger kritisch als der Herkulesstaude (Heracleum mantegazzianum) und den putzigen Halsbandsittichen (Psittacula krameri) weniger kritisch als etwa dem Waschbär oder der Bisamratte.
Mit Naturschutz hat diese Einschätzung freilich nichts zu tun.
