Rhus copallina B. S. Walters

Sandy hillsides, fields and clearings, old lake shores, and open (often oak) savannas.

Some collections from southeastern Michigan have more toothed leaflets than usual for this species.

The name was spelled "copallinum" by Linnaeus, and some authors (but not The Linnaean Plant Name Typification Project) retain the original spelling.
