Corallorhiza maculata var. maculata

Corallorhiza maculata var. maculata is used for a number of proposed names and combination. Nuttall (1823) coined Corallorhiza multiflora which Kuntze (1891) transferred to Neottia multiflora. Several varieties were proposed for C. multiflora , as well as for C. maculata which are now all treated under this name (WCSP 2021). This variety is distinct from other varieties of C. maculata by having a shorter expanded middle lobe of the labellum and shorter floral bracts (<1 mm) (Freudenstein 1997). Freudenstein (1997) also notes that no Rafinesque specimen was found for this species, making lectotypification impossible. The specimen from Long Island (C. maculata), was chosen as the neotype, in accordance with the localities listed by Rafinesque.
