In ITIS (2011) S. rubra ssp. alabamensis is given a new species name: S. alabamensis. This species has two subspecies, namely S. alabamensis spp. alabamensis and S. alabamensis spp. wherryi. This last one is a rename of S. rubra spp. wherryi.
S. rubra spp. jonesii is given a new name S. jonesii.
A few years ago, S. rubra spp. neisleri was proposed for the 'ancestral' type, also referenced as 'incompletely diagnosed taxon from Georgia and South Carolina'. More recently in 2018, B. Rice renamed this type to S. rubra spp. viatorum B. Rice. This spp. viatorum designation is use in the list below.
