Previously on List 1B.3. Possibly threatened by mining. Candidate for state listing in OR. Main distinction between varieties of C. nuttallii treated in TJM (1993) is differences in rhizomal leaves; however, rhizomal leaf morphology has been found to be highly variable and generally not useful for recognizing varieties within the species. Needs field surveys and further study. A synonym of C. nuttallii in TJM 2. USFWS uses the name C. gemmata. See Pittonia 1:162 (1888) for original description, and Harvard Papers in Botany 4:43-48 (1993) for revised nomenclature.
full nameCardamine nuttallii Greene var. gemmata (Greene) Roll.
