Historic — Myles Standish SF — A new location. (Previously located it in MSSF in 2010, but those plants have not survived regular mowing and a road renovation.)
Watch-Listed — Plymouth, Milton — According to a recent change in the concept of A. nantucketensis, it is understood in a broader sense and now includes a small-petaled variety of A. spicata. For the latter we prefer the available name A. micropetala (B.L.Robins) Ashe due to the absence of the needed combination A. spicata var. micropetala. If one includes this taxon in A. nantucketensis, then the Plymouth location may be new for A. nantucketensis.
Watch-Listed — Cape Cod, Nantucket — If understood in the original, narrow sense, this species occurs in Massachusetts only on the Cape and Islands.
Watch-Listed — Cape Cod — A known location
