Agalinis heterophylla is the most common species of Agalinis in Oklahoma and is common in southern Arkansas, eastern Texas, and throughout Louisiana, except the extreme southeastern portion of the state (J. E. Williams 1973; K. A. Vincent 1982). The species occurs sporadically in eastern Mississippi and is rare in Alabama, Missouri, and Tennessee. It differs from the closely related, and rare, A. calycina by wider leaves, shorter pedicels, larger corollas, and smaller capsules. It differs from A. auriculata, which has auriculate leaves, retrorse hairs on stems and branches, spikelike racemes, and ovate-lanceolate calyx lobes.
