Notes Glossary
  • Threatened by feral herbivores. Occurrences reported from the mainland (SBA and SLO counties) need further study but are probably S. xanti. Plants from GU Isl. may be distinct, perhaps at the varietal level. S. xanti complex needs taxonomic study. See Proceedings of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences 11:91 (1876) for original description, and Proceedings of the California Academy of Sciences III(2):166 (1901) for revised nomenclature.

      * 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.
