Triglochin gaspense, or Gaspe Peninsula arrow-grass, was first described as a species in 2011. It grows as a clump of stems between 2 and 8 inches tall. As of 2016, it was known mostly from Northeastern Canada and two locations in Maine, USA. It only grows in coastal salt marshes, and is of conservation concern due to its restricted habitat and small range. (Löve, D. and Lieth, H., 2011; NatureServe, 2018; USDA and NRCS, 2018)
