Notes Glossary
  • Move to List 1B? Threatened by road maintenance and non-native plants. SON Co. plants need taxonomic confirmation. Identification is very difficult; study needed. See L. arboreus in The Jepson Manual (1993) and TJM 2. USFWS uses the name L. arboreus var. eximius. See Erythea 3:116 (1895) for original description.

      * Presumed extirpated
      ? Uncertain about distribution or identity
      ?* Uncertain about distribution, but presumed extirpated if once present
      (?) Occurrence confirmed, but possibly extirpated
      Species may be present in other areas where conditions are favorable. This data should NOT be substituted for pre-project review or for on-site surveys.
