Sea Mayweed (Tripleurospermum maritimum ssp. maritimum) and Scentless Mayweed (Tripleurospermum maritimum ssp. inodorum) are a difficult pair for botanists they were formerly regarded as separate species, but more recent research views them as the same species or as subspecies. The type species Sea Mayweed is a biennial or perennial while Scentless Mayweed is a biennial at most. Other differences between the two are Sea Mayweeds straggly branches and the way its basal leaves lie partly on the ground.
