Move to List 1B? Taxonomic questions remain, since plant co-occurs with nominate variety. A synonym of A. lemmonii in The Jepson Manual, but author now believes it is distinct. Threatened by grazing. See Leaflets of Western Botany 7(9):220 (1955) for original description, Madroņo 31(1):48-56 (1984) for alternate taxonomic treatment, and Phytologia 74(1):1-25 (1993) for revised nomenclature.
