7b. Alchemilla filicaulis Buser subsp. vestita (Buser) M. E. Bradshaw, Watsonia. 5: 305. 1963.

Alchémille vêtue

Alchemilla filicaulis forma vestita Buser, Bull. Herb. Boissier 1(app. 2): 23. 1893; A. filicaulis var. vestita (Buser) H. J. Coste; A. vestita (Buser) Raunkiaer; A. vulgaris Linnaeus var. vestita (Buser) Fernald & Wiegand

Stems densely hairy. Leaf blades: basal sinus incisions relatively short or long, sometimes absent, abaxial surface usually irregularly or uniformly hairy, sometimes glabrous, nerves hairy throughout, adaxial usually densely hairy throughout, rarely only on folds. Inflorescences: primary branches densely hairy; peduncles hairy. Pedicels, or at least most, hairy. Flowers: hypanthium densely hairy.

Flowering late Jun–Aug. Moist to mesic meadows, herb slopes, sometimes near seashores; 0–500 m; Greenland; N.B., Nfld. and Labr., N.S., Que.; Europe.

Subspecies vestita was recognized by M. L. Fernald (1950) and A. E. Roland and E. C. Smith (1966) as Alchemilla minor Hudson, a misapplication of that name. The subspecies is probably introduced in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
