AbstractThirty-three new populations of Dalea reverchonii (Comanche Peak Prairie Clover) are reported from five additional counties in north central Texas: Bosque, Erath, Johnson, Somervell, and Tarrant counties. This expands the distribution of this Texas endemic from three counties to eight at a total of 69 sites. Habitat requirements, associated species, and threats are included and discussed. Dalea reverchonii is considered to be globally and state imperiled. The discovery of these additional populations and new county records may warrant modification of its conservation status.
