Type Remarks
Torrey & A.


Torrey & A. Gray referred to Lychnis pulchra, var. Hook. & Arn.! bot. Beechy, Suppl. p. 326. (an Cham. & Schlecht.?). Their citation of an Cham. & Schleccht.? refers to Lychnis pulchra Schtdl. & Cham. (1830). Since they indirectly referred to L. pulchra with an expression of doubt, S. pulchra is treated as a sp. nov.
