DistributionThis species is on the NCNHP Watch List, as W3 -- not conclusively documented in the state. Weakley (2020) says only "This species is reported for NC by Taylor (1989)", but the editors have no information on location or validity of the report. Thus, the reasoning for our rank of SR (Reported) as opposed to the NCNHP's SU (Undetermined). In May of 2022, BA Sorrie searched SERNEC and found this record: Columbus County, sphagnous bog at Delco, 4 April 1939, RK Godfrey 7084 (NY). There was no image attached to this record. No doubt this, or a duplicate specimen, was seen by Peter Taylor, the monographer of the genus in 1989.
AbundanceVery rare, perhaps historical. Aquatic bladderworts are often overlooked and so this location must be searched before declaring the species to be Historical in NC.
