Goodyera tesselata Lodd.
Common Name: TESSELATED RATTLESNAKE PLANTAIN
Coefficient of Conservatism: 8
Coefficient of Wetness: 3
Wetness Index: FACU
Physiognomy: Nt P-Forb

Coniferous and mixed forests, ranging from cedar swamps to well-forested ravines and hollows on sand dunes. Often growing with G. oblongifolia and/or G. repens, and apparently occasionally hybridizes with them; in fact, it has been suggested that G. tesselata itself may be of hybrid origin from these two species (Kallunki 1976). The leaves are rather gray-green or dusty in shade, in contrast to those of G. repens, which are deep green (apart from the paler reticulations).
