Antennaria neglecta Greene
Common Name: CAT'S FOOT
Coefficient of Conservatism: 3
Coefficient of Wetness: 5
Wetness Index: UPL
Physiognomy: Nt P-Forb

Primarily in dry open ground, including sandy savanna, fields, prairies; grassy hillsides.

As here defined, this is a sexually reproducing diploid species. Staminate clones are frequent. This species is apparently restricted in Michigan to the southern Lower Peninsula. Bayer has identified as A. neglecta two staminate individuals from barrens in Crawford Co. (on a mixed sheet with A. howellii subsp. petaloidea). The mixed collection plus the distribution is suspicious. Likewise, a staminate collection from Marquette Co., labeled some 30 years after its 1894 collection date (no collector stated) is highly suspicious on geographic grounds and a mixing of labels (or specimens) is suspected. These records are not mapped.
