    1. Reviewed by Adonis ('Don') Tate    Jul 7, 2005

    Action: changed name from "Minuartia douglasii" to "Spergula arvensis "

    Reviewer's comments:
         "According to Flora of North America (on, Minuartia has more than 5 stamens, unlike the pictured caryophyllaceae. The two massive leaf clusters per node pictured also distinguish Spergula arvensis. Minuartia's clusters are smaller in size & number of leaves."
