CAYUGA FLORA (1926) NOTES: In various localities in the Cayuga Lake Basin are found plants which answer to A. Milleri Britton, to A. urceolifer Miller, and possibly to A. medium Greene. In certain places, as for example along the rocky lake shore near Portland Point and Atwater, great masses of such forms occur. These forms, though constant in each locality, differ considerably in the different localities. In every instance they seem to combine characters found in A. androsaemifolium and A. cannabinum, but to present no new characters themselves. It seems wise at present to consider them of hybrid origin. Two principal types have been noted, as follows: (a) A form approaching A. urceolifer Miller, with long sepals equaling the tube of the corolla, and with glabrous foliage: gravelly bank by pumping station, Six Mile Creek (E, L. Palmer, also A. J. E. & L. H. MacDaniels). (b) A form approaching A. Milleri Britton, with short sepals and glabrous leaves: shale cliffs s. of Portland Point; shale talus along cliffs n. of Atwater. In both forms the corolla is distinctly more pinkish or more nearly pure white than in the greenish-white-flowered A. cannabinum and its varieties.
