Please try our next iteration of the Michigan Flora Online here. Beginning on February 1, 2023, will point to this new site.

The new site offers several benefits over the existing website, including real coordinate mapping, giving a clearer view of the density of documentation as well as more precision about plant distributions and their link to landforms. We will also have the ability to update species pages more regularly, both in terms of new collections and as more existing Michigan specimens are georeferenced. In addition, we have a better photo display, and offer indented keys.

Tomanthera auriculata of Michigan Flora

Apparently originally native from Ohio, southern Michigan, and southern Wisconsin southward and westward, but rare and local everywhere that it still grows. Collected in Michigan only by the First Survey in a sandy bur oak opening at White Pigeon, St. Joseph Co. (in 1837, MICH) and in dry openings near Edwardsburg, Cass Co. (in 1838, NY).
