A reassessment of the taxonomy of Liatris borealis Nutt. ex J. McNab suggests that it is not conspecific with L. novae-angliae, but is a synonym of L. scariosa L. var. scariosa. Three varieties are recognized within the L. scariosa complex; the varietal name L. borealis var. novae-angliae, not hitherto validly published, is validly published here.
