  • Known only from southern Sierra Nevada. Several occurrences at lower elevations are possibly extirpated. Many occurrences historical; needs field surveys. Possibly threatened by development, grazing, vehicles, road construction and maintenance, recreational activities, and non-native plants. Previously identified as E. palmeri. Similar to E. gracilipes. Not in TJM 2. See Aliso 30(1):49-68 (2012) for original description.

  • 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. This data should NOT be substituted for pre-project review or for on-site surveys.
Includes unprocessed quads for CRPR 3 and 4 plants; unprocessed location data has not been quality controlled and may contain errors.
