Small-fruited Agrimony Agrimonia microcarpa WallrothS1 (Highly state rare)  Synonyms: Agrimonia platycarpa, Agrimonia pubescens var. microcarpa, Agrimonia pumila.


The distribution of this species in Maryland is enigmatic. Historically this species has been reported as far west as Washington County (Shreve 1910) and as far north as northern Cecil County (Reed 1986) but is recently known from the Coastal Plain as far south as Dorchester County. This species occupies a wide range of geological substrates from strongly acid to ultramafic. Habitat at the largest known population is unremarkable and there appears to be much habitat available for the species indicating perhaps that habitat and survey prescriptions need re-evaluation (MD DNR). The Anne Arundel and Cecil County populations are now extirpated.

Where to find:

Dry-mesic oak and dry pine-oak forests and woodlands over rocky, sandy or gravelly substrates (MD DNR).

There are 13 records in the project database.
