Taxonomy
According to some sources, “Along with a few other goldenrod species, such as Riddell's Goldenrod and Ohio Goldenrod, Stiff Goldenrod has been recently reassigned from the Solidago genus to the Oligoneuron genus” (Illinois Wildflowers). GRIN38 lists this plant as Oligoneuron rigidum. Most other sources, including UniProt33, NCBI34, ITIS, The Plant List36, and The Global Compositae Checklist39, list Oligoneuron rigidum as a synonym of Solidago rigida.
