Flora of Virginia Name/Status
Rorripa aquatica (Eaton) E.J. Palmer & Steyermark
This species differs from all Rorripa spp. in petal color and other morphological characters, and has been placed in several different genera in recent years. Therefore, we consider the matter of its generic placement unsettled and follow Les et al. (1995, Rhodora 97: 185-200) in retaining Neobeckia, at least for now.
Wet depressions in sandy alluvial bottomland. Rare, se. Coastal Plain; known historically from Southampton County, where it was last collected by Fernald (1937) from Three Creek near Drewryville.
