New Cinquefoil in Saskatchewan
May 17th, 2018: Potentilla hudsonii Ertter is a recently described species that occurs in Saskatchewan. Dr. Barbara Ertter of the University of California has been investigating the entity for some time and visited Saskatchewan in 2015 to study plants in the field. She recently published the description of this species, which she named after Saskatchewan’s own John Hudson. P. hudsonii is most morphologically similar to P. rubricaulis and P. hookeriana (see Ertter 2018 for a key) and can be found in grassland sites that have sandy, rocky or thin soils. It’s currently known Saskatchewan distribution is centered in the Saskatoon, Prince Albert and North Battleford areas (see figure). The SKCDC has ranked this species as an S2S3 tracked species.
