Known mostly from Hot Springs Mtn. Most of the plants labeled as ssp. leptosiphon from the Palomar Mtns. are mis-identifications of M. nana ssp. tenuiflora. May not warrant taxonomic recognition due to the following: problems with the type specimen and its distribution, too much intermediacy between the current subtaxa in the M. nana species complex, a lot of intergradation among the four subspecies, and evident intergradations among larger flowered forms of M. nana with M. macrantha; needs further study. Threatened by recreational activities and grazing. Not in TJM 2. See Report of the U.S. and Mexican Boundary Survey, p. 129 (1859) by W. Emory for original description, and Muhlenbergia 8:31 (1912) for revised nomenclature.
