Please try our next iteration of the Michigan Flora Online here. Beginning on February 1, 2023, michiganflora.net 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.

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.
