Notes Glossary
  • Subspecies hallii previously CRPR 2B.1; taxonomic distinctiveness of sspp. is uncertain; needs genetic, cytological, and morphological study. Threatened by grazing, vehicles, and groundwater drawdown. See An Account of an Expedition from Pittsburgh to the Rocky Mountains 1:453 (1823) for original description, Flora of North America: Exogenous or Dicotyledonous Plants 2(3):487 (1843) for taxonomic treatment, and Publications of the Carnegie Institute of Washington 504:104-107 (1938) for original description of all sspp. documented in California.

      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.
