Rubus huttonii Bailey

Hutton’s Dewberry (Rubus huttonii)

Hutton’s Dewberry is, or rather was, a somewhat prostrate, creeping shrub with 1 to 2 cm large, white flowers that was known from only three nearby localities in West Virginia, USA.

The species was not recorded in recent searches and might be extinct, however, according to some authors it may also be synonymous with another species, the Swamp Dewberry (Rubus hispidus L.) (see photo).
