Notes Glossary
  • Move to List 1B? Previously on List 4.3; apparently rarer than previously thought. May not be distinct from D. gypsophilum; a synonym of this plant in TJM 2. Needs further study. Threatened by grazing. Possibly threatened by road widening. See Brittonia 8(1):5 (1954) for original description, and MadroƱo 48(2):90-97 (2001) for alternate taxonomic treatment.

  • 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.
