 Comments
       
  Comment: The Flora of North America vol. 4 (2003) notes that Sesuvium sessile Pers. has been previously misapplied to Sesuvium species in North America. Tropicos (online, 2012) indicates it is treated as a synonym of S. portulacastrum (L.) L. in recent floras of southern South America (2008, 2012)
