Page 201 ..ADD.. ..342. The name "Sparganium minor" is not a published botanical name. It is a name coined by Rev. John Russell, a professor of botany, while meeting with Thoreau on August 18, 1854 (VI 450) in describing one of Thoreau's Sparganium specimens found in Concord, Massachusetts. Based upon the features of the plant mentioned, the plant could be either Sparganium americanum or Sparganium chlorocarpum, both known from Concord. Thoreau uses the made-up name later only once, on September 5, 1854 (VII 13).

Page 201 ..ADD.. ..343. The species Amaranthus hypochondriacus is an uncommon escape that is native to southwestern North America. It was distinguished in the first (1848) and second (1856) editions of Gray's Manual used by Thoreau, but many manuals after Thoreau's time treated it as a form of the common, native Amaranthus hybridus. It is not distinguished at all in Gray's Manual of Botany 8th ed. (1950), but is currently recognized. A specimen in Thoreau's herbarium labeled with this name by him has only recently been confirmed to be this species and is the only known voucher for its occurrence in Concord, Massachusetts. His Journal reference at IV 351 has the proper description and habitat to be this species.

Page 201 ..ADD.. ..344. The species Prenanthes trifoliata was not distinguished from Prenanthes alba in the manuals used by Thoreau.

Page 201 ..ADD.. ..345. It is uncertain to which species Thoreau applies the names Aster carneus and Aster salicifolius, but most likely to Aster simplex of Gray's Manual 8th ed.
