Borodinia burkii (Porter) P.J. Alexander & Windham. Burk's Smooth Rockcress. Phen: Apr-May. Hab: Limestone barrens, shale barrens, and other dry, rocky habitats. Dist: E. and c. PA south to e. WV, ne. TN, and w. NC in the sedimentary rock Appalachians. Radford, Ahles, & Bell (1968) attributed this plant (as Arabis laevigata var. burkii) to NC based on somewhat aberrant specimens from high elevation cove forests; these are better assigned to B. laevigata. Hopkins (1937), however, cites a specimen from Hot Springs, Madison County, NC, an area with plausible habitats (dry sedimentary rock woodlands, shale barrens).
