Taxon Profile     (Last Modified On 9/23/2014)
Notes: Bremekamp (1958) recognized two varieties of this species, which were distinguished by patterns and density of pubescence. Newer specimens document more variation in these characters than he described and the occurrence of both varieties in the same general area, and these varieties may not be distinct taxa. This species is less commonly collected than Pyragra ankarensis. Pyragra obtusifolia is similar to Apomuria hymenodes, and without fruits these can be rather easily confused.
