  1. The New York Flora Atlas and New England Wild Flower Society list the spiny-spore quillwort as Isoëtes echinospora ssp. muricata because the leaves of the North American plants of bear stomata, while those of the European plants do not. The other sources used here treat ssp. muricata as a synonym.
