Species Name (as per The IPNI) : Spiraea diversifolia Dunn
Comments / notes : Dunn described Spiraea diversifolia as differing from S. hypoleuca in its glabrous inflorescences and sterile branches with circular, palmatifid leaves. Very often herbarium specimens do not include sterile branches. Most of those that do have palmatifid leaves and as some of these also have hairy inflorescences, it is not possible to distinguish the two species. It is suspected that most plants assigned to S. hypoleuca would have circular, palmatifid leaves on their sterile branches.
