Draba reptans (Lam.) Fernald[FNA7, HC, HC2]
Carolina whitlow-grass

Publication: Rhodora. 36: 368. 1934.

Origin: Native

selected vouchers: WTU

Notes: FNA7: "Draba reptans is often confused with D. cuneifolia, but the two are easily separated. The rachises and pedicels of D. reptans are usually glabrous (rarely with a few isolated trichomes); those of D. cuneifolia are always densely pubescent. Interestingly, both species show parallel variations in chromosome number; it is currently unclear whether this variation is real or the result of misidentified specimens and/or erroneous counts."
