22. Antennaria microphylla Rydberg, Bull. Torrey Bot. Club. 24: 303. 1897.

Littleleaf pussytoes

Antennaria bracteosa Rydberg; A. microphylla Lunell var. solstitialis Lunell; A. nitida Greene; A. rosea Greene var. nitida (Greene) Breitung; A. solstitialis Lunell

Dioecious. Plants 9—30 cm (stems stipitate-glandular distally). Stolons 1—5 cm. Basal leaves 1-nerved, spatulate, 6—16 × 2—6 mm, tips mucronate, faces silvery gray-pubescent. Cauline leaves linear, 5—25 mm, not flagged (apices acute). Heads 6—13 in corymbiform arrays. Involucres: staminate 5—6.5 mm; pistillate 5.5—7 mm. Phyllaries distally bright white to light yellow. Corollas: staminate 2.5—3 mm; pistillate 3—4.3 mm. Cypselae 0.7—1.2 mm, glabrous or sparingly papillate; pappi: staminate 3—4 mm; pistillate 3—5 mm. 2 n = 28.

Flowering early—mid summer. Moist open areas, flood plains of streams, margins of alkaline depressions, lower montane to subalpine (subarctic); 0—3200 m; Alta., B.C., Man., N.W.T., Nunavut, Ont., Que., Sask., Yukon; Alaska, Ariz., Calif., Colo., Idaho, Minn., Mont., Nebr., Nev., N.Mex., N.Dak., Oreg., S.Dak., Utah, Wash., Wyo.

Antennaria microphylla is a primary sexual progenitor of the A. rosea polyploid agamic complex (R. J. Bayer 1990b). A. Cronquist (1955) included A. rosea within his circumscription of A. microphylla . It is preferable to recognize sexual diploids as distinct from their morphologically discrete hybrid apomictic derivatives. Antennaria microphylla is always dioecious and has stems distally stipitate-glandular and white phyllaries; A. rosea is always gynoecious and has stems without glandular hairs and phyllaries only occasionally white.

Some authors (A. E. Porsild 1950; E. H. Moss 1959; Porsild and W. J. Cody 1980) have recognized A. nitida as distinct; comparisons of the nomenclatural types of the two show that they are conspecific. Antennaria microphylla has allelopathic properties (G. D. Manners and D. S. Galitz 1985).
