Notes Glossary
  • Previously on List 1B.3. Possibly threatened by mining. Candidate for state listing in OR. Main distinction between varieties of C. nuttallii treated in TJM (1993) is differences in rhizomal leaves; however, rhizomal leaf morphology has been found to be highly variable and generally not useful for recognizing varieties within the species. Needs field surveys and further study. A synonym of C. nuttallii in TJM 2. USFWS uses the name C. gemmata. See Pittonia 1:162 (1888) for original description, and Harvard Papers in Botany 4:43-48 (1993) for revised nomenclature.

  • Notes:
      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.
Quad data is not available for all List 3 and 4 plants. For those that do contain this data, it has not been quality controlled and is potentially incomplete, inaccurate, and/or out of date. Please use caution when referencing this information. We are currently working hard to maintain this data and hope to provide accurate and up to date information in the near future.
