Typha domingensis Pers.[FNA22, HC2]
southern cat-tail

Publication: Syn. Pl. 2: 532. 1807.

Origin: Introduced

selected vouchers: WTU

Notes: Historically in our area this species has not been known north of California and Nevada. In addition to the WA specimens, it has recently (2017) been collected along the Columbia River in Oregon. Whether these populations should be considered range expansions of a native species or dispersal events of an introduced species can't be clearly resolved with the information currently available.

FNA22: "Typha domingensis probably should be treated as a highly variable pantropic and warm temperate species, occurring to 40ยบ E north and south latitude worldwide, and needing study to determine infraspecific taxa and delimitation from related species (B. G. Briggs and L. A. S. Johnson and B. G. Briggs 1968; S. G. Smith 1987)."
