*Sagina procumbens Linnaeus. Northern Pearlwort, Bird's-eye, Perennial Pearlwort. Phen: May-Sep. Hab: Disturbed soils. Dist: Native of Eurasia (or, perhaps, also ne. North America).

Origin/Endemic status: Eurasia

Other Comments: Crow (1978) questions whether S. procumbens is native at all in the Western Hemisphere. In North America, it is concentrated in 2 main regions, from NS and QC south to MD, and from sw. BC south to c. CA, with scattered occurrences elsewhere, such as around the Great Lakes, CO, AR, s. OH, and w. NC. Whether or not the species is native in the New World, the occurrence in NC (in a gravel parking lot on top of Roan Mountain) is almost certainly adventive.

Synonymy: = C, FNA5, G, Il, K1, K3, K4, Mi, NE, NY, Pa, WV, Atha, Alvarez, & Chaya (2018), Crow (1978); = n/a – RAB; > Sagina procumbens L. var. compacta Lange – F; > Sagina procumbens L. var. procumbens – F
