Scientific NameCommon NameSummary
Amaranthus albusProstrate PigweedMuller included it as being introduced in the Juneau area, but there are no collection records in Arctos, nor on the e-Flora BC map. Species is included in AKEPIC, but no records indicated for Southeast Alaska. Perhaps this species is not really established?
Amaranthus retroflexusRedroot PigweedReported from the Sitka area (both on the Muller checklist, as well as on AKEPIC info sheet), though there are no collections in Arctos, nor any reflected on the e-flora BC maps, and AKEPIC does not have it occurring in recent surveys for non-native species, so it seems likely this species is not established.
