General Discussion

There is one report of Madia sativa Molina from Suffolk Co., NY from 1944. There is speculation that this represents either a non-persisting occurrence or a misidentified M. glomerata Hook. No specimens have been seen and further research is needed to clarify the occurrence of Madia in our area.
