Discovered in Michigan in 1981 (Ng 600, 645, AUB, MSC) in a prairie marsh south of Niles; also in a periodically flooded sand flat near New Buffalo (K. Dritz 935 in 1991, MOR).

The pedicels are not only shorter than in G. neglecta, but also thicker, giving a quite different aspect to the plant. The capsules are spherical and somewhat larger, on average, than the more ovoid fruit of G. neglecta.
