Phemeranthus parviflorus (Nuttall) Kiger. Small-flowered Rock-pink, Prairie Rock-pink. Phen: Apr-Sep. Hab: Acidic glades and ledges. Dist: MN, SD, and WY south to w. LA, s. TX, NM, AZ, and Mexico (CHH, COA, DGO, JAL, NLE, SON, ZAC); disjunct east of the Mississippi River in c. AL (Chilton and Coosa counties).

Origin/Endemic status: Native

Taxonomy Comments: The AL populations, substantially disjunct from the rest of the species' distribution and alleged to have morphological differences (stigmas 3 or at least strongly 3-lobed vs. single and capitate, smaller flowers and more elongate stems), need additional and modern study; Murdy & Carter (1985) considered them to be conspecific with Phemeranthus parviflorus.

Other Comments: A diploid species.
