Publication: Kongl. Svenska Vetensk. Akad. Nya Handl. 31: 190, plate 5. 1810.

Origin: Native

selected vouchers: WTU

Notes: FNA8: "E. Haber (1993) interpreted some herbarium specimens with intermediate morphologies and abnormal pollen as putative hybrids between Pyrola chlorantha and P. minor, and between P. chlorantha and P. picta. Leafless forms of P. chlorantha can be distinguished reliably from those of P. picta by the size and shape of the calyx lobes."
