Taxonomy Comments: Ward (2006) discusses the nomenclatural change from 'polypetala' to 'catesbaei'. Additionally, the epithet has traditionally been spelled catesbaei; this is necessarily corrected to catesbyi under provisions of the Code (Weakley & Poindexter 2020).

Synonymy: = Weakley & Poindexter (2020b) in Weakley et al (2020); = Silene baldwinii Nutt. – S; = Silene catesbaei Walter – K3, K4, WH3; = Silene polypetala (Walter) Fernald & Schub. – Fl4, FNA5, K1
