Notes: FNA8: "Androsace filiformis grows in wetlands and is easily identified by the tiny flowers and delicate, filiform inflorescence that give the plants a graceful appearance. No other North American Androsace occurs in wetlands. Androsace filiformis occurs widely across Europe and Asia (including the Russian Far East) and in the western continental United States, with a notable gap in Alaska and Canada."
