Native Plant Trust: Go Botany Discover thousands of New England plants


See list of 3 species in this genus

Amsinckia douglasiana A. DC. has been erroneously attributed to Ma and Me due to misapplication of names (i.e., the name A. douglasiana was formerly misapplied to plants of 
 A. menziesii var. intermedia) and misidentifications. This species has actually not been collected in New England. Amsinckia spectabilis Fisch. & C.A. Mey. var. spectabilis has been attributed 
to Middlesex County, MA, by several sources (e.g., Kartesz 1999, Sorrie and Somers 1999). The 
reports were based on the following specimen—1878, Alcott s.n. ( NEBC!). The specimen was 
incorrectly determined and is Amsinckia menziesii var. menziesii. Reference: Ganders (1993).
