The map represents records of Coleataenia rigidula (both ssp.) and C. stipata, both of which were mapped under a broad concept of Panicum rigidulum in previous, hard-copy editions of the Atlas. However, it is probably representative of the distribution of ssp. rigidula alone. Extensive, state-wide herbarium work will be required to map all of these taxa fully and accurately.
Ssp. rigidula s.s. occurs in floodplain forests, alluvial swamps (especially in seasonally flooded sloughs), depression ponds, interdune swales and ponds, maritime swamps, tidal (especially wind-tidal) oligohaline marshes, seasonally exposed river and stream shores and bars, wet clearings, ditches, and other disturbed sites; it is most characteristic of seasonally flooded habitats that draw down during the growing season. Common in the Coastal Plain; frequent in the Piedmont; infrequent in the mountains.
