The current map is incomplete. Many Virginia specimens of P. setaceum are not identified as to variety. Based on specimens at VPI annotated by Dr. R.L. Wilbur (DUKE) in 2015, as well as additional verified specimens at other herbaria, the most frequent subspecific taxon in Virginia is var. m├╝hlenbergii, while var. ciliatifolium and var. setaceum are widespread but much less often encountered. Further study of herbarium material is needed.
Various mesic to dry habitats, including woodlands, clearings, interdune swales, meadows, fields, and roadsides. Widespread, but status uncertain; less common than var. muhlenbergii.
