Notes Glossary
  • Threatened by urbanization. Previously assigned to B. coronaria; differentiated by staminodes strongly inrolled, tapering to an apex vs. staminodes flat to incurved, uniformly wide from base to obtuse apex in B. coronaria. Similar to B. rosea ssp. rosea, but with perianth always violet, most floral characters longer, and with a disjunct distribution in non-serpentine habitats along the eastern edge of the Great Valley. See Systematic Botany 38(4):1012-1028 (2013) 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.
