General Discussion

The nonnative Peucedanum ostruthium (L.) W.D.J. Koch has been reported from upstate New York and eastern Pennsylvania. Another nonnative, Peucedanum palustre (L.) Moench, has been reported from Massachusetts. Either species may eventually be found in our area, but no specimens have yet been seen.
