Solidago erecta has long been considered a member of the flora of New York, but recent studies have revealed that the six known voucher collections of S. erecta from New York had been misidentified and have been reassigned to S. speciosa or S. puberula. The earliest published reports of S. erecta from New York were partially based on the misapplication of scientific names and a misunderstanding of the taxonomy of the S. speciosa/S. erecta complex. Solidago erecta should be excluded from the flora of New York because it has not been documented from the state with voucher specimens.
