Scientific NameCommon NameSummary
Clinopodium douglasiiYerba BuenaIncluded on the preliminary checklist based on an early report from Juneau. That appears to be the only record of this species in the state.
Dracocephalum parviflorumDragonheadIncluded in the preliminary checklist, but no collections in ARCTOS from anywhere close to Southeast Alaska. This species appears to be distributed primarily well inland.
Galeopsis bifidaSplit-lip Hemp-nettleCollections in ARCTOS and reports in AKEPIC database from multiple communities in the region.
Galeopsis tetrahitBrittle-stem Hemp-nettleA handful of collections in ARCTOS with many records from several communities throughout the region.
Glechoma hederaceaGround-ivyA 1939 collection in ARCTOS from Wrangell, and a report in AKEPIC database from Juneau from 2010.
Lamium albumWhite dead-nettleReports in AKEPIC from Juneau, Skagway, and Gustavus. A collection record from Juneau in ARCTOS.
Lycopus uniflorusNorthern BugleweedSeveral collections from the southern half of the region (Stikine River and Prince of Wales Island south), with a single collection from northern Chichagof Island.
Marrubium vulgareHorehoundA single 1927 collection from Juneau which notes that it was introduced with sheep manure. No further records in AKEPIC, so this species was presumably never established.
Mentha arvensisField MintScattered collections from the mainland (north to south) and the southern islands. No collections from the major central and northern islands.
Mentha spicataSpearmintA single 1979 collection in ARCTOS from Goddard Hot Springs (near Sitka). An old (first half of 1900s) report from Juneau and a 2014 report from northern Prince of Wales Island in AKEPIC.
Mentha x piperitaPeppermintA single early (<1918) report noted in AKEPIC database from Juneau. Probably not established in the region outside of where it has been planted.s
Nepeta catariaCatnipAn early 1900s record from Sitka included in AKEPIC, and a 1989 record from between Skagway and Dyea on the e-Flora BC map are the only records of this species from the region.
Prunella vulgarisSelf-healCollections in ARCTOS from throughout the region.
Scutellaria galericulataMarsh SkullcapThere are no georeferenced collections in ARCTOS and none of the collections with media available (as of 5 Dec 2016) were from the region.
Stachys mexicanaCiliate Hedge-nettleFour collections in ARCTOS from the far southern part of the region near the mainland. Those, and another (1893) collection from the Nass River in adjacent BC are apparently the only records north of Vancouver Island.
Stachys palustrisSwamp HedgenettleApparently no records in ARCTOS or indicated on e-Flora BC maps from the region. Unclear why it was included on the preliminary checklist and in Hall's 2010 treatment.
