Notes Glossary
  • Plants treated as sspp. eurekense (known only from the Humboldt Bay area; threatened by development, vehicles, and non-native plants), menziesii (nearly extirpated on the Monterey Peninsula; seriously threatened by development, vehicles, deer browsing, and non-native plants), and yadonii (known only from near Marina on Monterey Bay; threatened by development and sand mining) are not validly published; see these names in TJM (1993). See Zoe 5(6-8):103 (1901) for original description.
