Flora of Virginia Name/Status
Antennaria howellii Greene ssp neodioica (Greene) Bayer
Incompletely mapped at the present time pending examination of herbarium specimens mapped in Atlas III as A. neglecta. When the A. neodioica complex was expanded to include ssp. howellii, it necessitated the change of the species name to A. howellii, a slightly earlier name than A. neodioica; see Brittonia 41:396-398 (1989). The northern ssp. canadensis is attributed to Virginia in FNA at the southern limit of its range, and may occur very sparingly here. However, actual specimens are not known to us and the ssp. is considered unverified.
Dry forests, woodlands, rock outcrops, and clearings. Limited herbarium and field studies indicate that this taxon is scattered in the mountains, inner Piedmont, and n. Piedmont generally. However, because of widespread lumping of members of the Antennaria howellii complex and A. neglecta in Virginia floristic studies, extensive herbarium work is needed to sort out the distribution and status of individual taxa.
