Two-Leaved Toothwort, Crinkleroot

Dentaria diphylla is very limited in its distribution in Indiana. In the Chicago Region, it was previously known only from Berrien County, Michigan until its discovery in St. Joseph County, Indiana by Scott Namestnik and Vic Riemenschneider, growing along a meandering stream in rich, mesic woods. Now called Cardamine diphylla by some taxonomists.

Vic and I found this species independently in St. Joseph County. Vic found it first, then I found it several years later without knowing of his discovery.
