Platanthera ×‌vossii Case was reported from MA, ME by Kartesz (1999) based on personal communication with Paul Brown, but specimens are unknown. Brown (2002) resurrected the genus Gymnadeniopsis for species allied to Platanthera clavellata; however, phylogenetic studies to date (e.g., Hapeman and Inoue 1997) show that Gymnadeniopsis is nested 
within Platanthera and not monophyletic. Therefore, it is not recognized here. Reference: 
Sheviak (2002b).
