Notes Glossary
  • Previously on List 1B. Plants from MNT and SCR counties need verification. Threatened by coastal development and non-native plants. Can be difficult to identify; many herbarium specimens need to be checked for correct identification. May be a hybrid between G. hirsutula var. hirsutula and G. stricta var. platyphylla or G. stricta var. angustifolia; needs further study. Not in TJM 2. See Pittonia 2:289 (1892) for original description and Novon 2(3):215-217 (1992) 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those that do contain this data, it has not been quality controlled and is potentially incomplete, inaccurate, and/or out of date.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.
