Notes: FNA19: "Plants called Hieracium praealtum Villars ex Gochnat (at least those called H. praealtum var. decipiens W. D. J. Koch) reputedly differ from members of H. piloselloides in having blades of their proximal leaves stellate-pubescent abaxially (M. L. Fernald 1950); such plants may be found in the flora and may merit taxonomic recognition."
