Rorippa curvisiliqua (Hook.) Bessey ex Britton[FNA7, HC, HC2]
western yellowcress

Publication: Mem. Torrey Bot. Club. 5: 169. 1894.

Origin: Native

selected vouchers: WTU

Notes: FNA7: "Rorippa curvisiliqua is a highly variable species divided artificially by R. L. Stuckey (1972) into seven varieties. They were only reluctantly recognized by R. C. Rollins (1993) and N. H. Holmgren (2005b), though these authors felt, and I concur, that it is impossible to determine any of them reliably. A collection from New Brunswick, Blaney s.n. (DAO, MO, NBM, UNB), Northumberland County, 2 Sep 2004, was most likely introduced by migratory birds."
