Diphasiastrum ×sabinifolium D. Drife

Known from only one site in Chippewa Co., on the moist floor of a long abandoned sand pit.

First found in Michigan in 1957 (Hiltunen, 1961; reported as Lycopodium sitchense). This is a hybrid of Diphasiastrum sitchense (Rupr.) Holub × D. tristachyum and is included here because D. sitchense is as yet unknown from Michigan, though well known from the north shore of Lake Superior. Diphasiastrum sitchense differs from D. ×sabinifolium in having the strobilus essentially sessile. See Beitel (1979) for more details.
