Epilobium brachycarpum I. Shackleford

Dry, open sandy ground.

First collected in Michigan by I. Shackleford in Houghton Co. in 2006. A western species, sometimes considered native in the east and therefore a disjunct, but our only Michigan occurrence seems clearly adventive in a gravel pit. Collections in adjacent Ontario are much more mysterious and may well represent rare disjunct populations. See Oldham & Macdonald (2015) for detailed information about these Ontario occurrences.
