Collected by O. A. Farwell in Houghton Co. in 1934 and 1935. F. J. Hermann collected from presumably the same colony in 1936 (7926, GH), citing the habitat as a dry pasture. Presumably introduced from the west.

The deeply pinnatifid leaflets with narrowly revolute margins indicate our material is P. gracilis var. flabelliformis (Lehm.) Torr. & A. Gray.
