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.

Cerastium pumilum A. A. Reznicek

Very similar to C. semidecandrum in general appearance, and like it, an annual European weed of dry, especially sandy, sunny roadsides and disturbed areas. The two can sometimes co-occur, though C. pumilum is apparently less abundant. First collected in 1985 in Ingham and Van Buren Cos. by R. K. Rabeler (1988).
