Nabalus serpentaria (Pursh) Hooker. Lion's-foot, Gall-of-the-earth. Phen: Aug-Oct. Hab: Forests. Dist: MA south to GA, ne. FL, Panhandle FL, and MS.

Origin/Endemic status: Native

Taxonomy Comments: Pursh (1814) capitalized the epithet (in Prenanthes), indicating that he regarded the epithet as a noun in apposition, not an adjective; the correct spelling of the epithet in Nabalus is therefore "serpentaria".
