Notes Glossary
  • Move to List 1B? Taxonomic questions remain, since plant co-occurs with nominate variety. A synonym of A. lemmonii in The Jepson Manual, but author now believes it is distinct. Threatened by grazing. See Leaflets of Western Botany 7(9):220 (1955) for original description, MadroƱo 31(1):48-56 (1984) for alternate taxonomic treatment, and Phytologia 74(1):1-25 (1993) for revised nomenclature.

      Definitions of codes preceding a county and/or quad:
      * 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.
