Examination of type specimens and other collections of Cimicifuga acerina f. purpurea and forma strigulosa revealed that they are not separable from one another but are very distinct from C. acerina and other related species of the genus in many morphological characters, including sepal color, stamen number, anther structure, and presence of cauline leaves. Therefore, these two formae are combined and recognized here as a distinct species, C. purpurea.
