notes
Plants in CA outside vicinity of Colorado River are likely misidentifications; needs further study. Many occurrences historical; needs field surveys. Potentially threatened by solar energy development. Often confused with L. andersonii and L. brevipes var. brevipes. See Proceedings of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences 6:47 (1862) for original description.
