I have found this species only a few times although there are numerous reports of its occurrence. The strawberries are not easily differentiated and our cultivated strawberry was not separated from this species by our older authors. The cultivated strawberry often persists for a few years where it has been cultivated but does not become established. My Montgomery County specimens were found on a wooded sandstone bluff of Sugar Creek in the "Shades." My Wells County specimen was found on an open, wooded slope. In La Porte County I found it along a roadside by a woods. This is a European species but it may be also a native of America.
