Callitriche palustris L.[HC2, ILBC2]
spring water-starwort, vernal water-starwort

Origin: Native

Notes: KZ99 considers C. anceps a synonym of C. heterophylla, but here we follow Philbrick (1989) who called it an ecological variant of C. verna
C. verna was published in 1755 and C. palustris in 1753, here we use the earlier name
