Notes: Spelling corrected from A. trivialis Pursh in FNA
Historically specimens of this species have been incorrectly assigned the name Alisma plantago-aquatica, which is a misapplied name. A. plantago-aquatica is restricted in distribution to Eurasia, with a few introduced populations reported from Alaska.
