Adlumia fungosa (Aiton) Greene ex Britton, Sterns, & Poggenburg. Phen: Jun-Sep. Hab: Cliffs, talus, rocky slopes, rich stream-bottom forests, cool rocky forests, burned areas, especially over calcareous or mafic rocks. Dist: QC west to WI and MN, south to n. DE, w. NC, TN, and IN. Reported for Plaquemine Parish, LA (Allen 2017), a location that seems biogeographically implausible to be a native occurrence.
Origin/Endemic status: Native
Other Comments: The seeds are apparently long-lived and are scarified by fire; the species appears after fires where not previously apparent (R. Allen, pers. comm., 2017).
