Scabiosa

See list of 2 species in this genus

Some species of Scabiosa (e.g., S. ochroleuca) are considered to be a complex of intergrading microspecies by European botanists (Jasiewicz 1976). Given that the characters that separate these races are trivial and intermediate morphologies abound, the species of Scabiosa are here treated in the broad sense. Scabiosa atropurpurea L. was reported from MA by Sorrie and Somers (1999) based on the following specimen: 20 Aug 1880, Manning s.n. ( NEBC!). It was incorrectly determined. This species has also been reported from ME by Campbell et al. (1995), but specimens are unknown.
