Skinner's Gerardia Agalinis skinneriana (Wood) BrittonEndangered (MD)  -  S1 (Highly state rare)    Synonyms: Skinner's False Foxglove.
Kingdom Plantae   >   Division Tracheophyta   >   Class Magnoliopsida   >   Order Lamiales   >   Family Orobanchaceae   >   Genus Agalinis   


Endangered by habitat loss, damage by off-road vehicles and woody succession of barrens habitat. Pettingill and Neel (2008) confirmed that Maryland plants were sister to the sample from Missouri (within the core range of the species) but indicate that further investigation may be warranted to determine if the Maryland populations are actually an unrecognized species, as our populations are striking disjuncts from Midwestern prairies (MD DNR).

Where to find:

Sandy roads, barrens and fields (MD DNR).
