    1. Reviewed by Diana Jolles    Mar 29, 2014

    Action: changed name from "Pyrola picta" to "Pyrola aphylla "

    Reviewer's comments:
         "This is a beautiful example of P. aphylla, which has highly reduced leaves and often produces MANY inflorescences from a short, thickened rhizome at one location, rather than producing 1-3 inflorescences from single basal rosettes produced along extensive rhizomes like P. picta (Jolles & Wolfe, Sys. Bot. 2012)."
