Panzner Wetland Field B, wooded northern end. With populus, carex, sensitive fern. locally noticeable. Later on realized that some of this group of plants matched S. torreyi better than americanus, but this photo appears to be americana (leaf shorter than infl. ht, two stigma lobes, shape of achene (though still very young). I need to revisit this. ~30cm tall, loose colonies (not clumped)
Complete guess on this id ('insect larvae salix' in image search, best match). Very common on Salix amygdaloides
Panzner Wetland Field B, northern wooded part. With populus, carex, sensitive fern.
Panzner Wetland Field B, northern part. Locally dominant, in wooded wetland with carex, typha, sensitive fern. Most trees are juvenile, about 8cm dbh, 10m tall. I was surprised to find this species here, since it was not on the original delineation survey but is quite common.
