General Discussion

This species has been reported from Massachusetts, southern New Jersey, eastern Pennsylvania and perhaps (erroneously?) New York; but no specimens have been seen. Its morphological similarity to the common R. obtusifolius may have resulted in this species being overlooked, and it may eventually be confirmed in our area.
