Note: Robinson (1979), in his revision of Schistocarpha, also synonymized Schistocarpha triangularis Rusby, Bull. New York Bot. Gard. 4(14): 392 (1907) with Senecio alternifolius (Sch.Bip. ex Rusby) Greenm. which he said was Also known as Gynoxys repanda Wedd.; this is reflected in the synonymy above. This agrees with determinations made by Cuatrecasas of Bang 1574 (US). However, B. L. Robinson remarked on the material of Bang 2477 in US that this material (distributed as Eupatorium trichotomum Sch.Bip.) was certainly not a Eupatorium, nor was it Schistocarpha triangularis Rusby, but was apparently a Senecio. This suggests a mixed gathering. Greenman only cited duplicates of Bang 2477 in MO, and GH. This suggests that it may have been a mixed collection, and that the material in NY was of a different taxon.
