TAXONOMIC ASSESSMENT OF ASTRAGALUS TEGETARIOIDES (FABACEAE) AND A NEW RELATED SPECIES FROM NORTHERN CALIFORNIA
Author(s): Robert J. Meinke and Thomas N. Kaye
Publication Type: Journal Article
Journal: Madroño; a West American journal of botany
Article Topic(s): Astragalus,anxius,tegetarioides
AbstractAstragalus tegetarioides is taxonomically redefined following recent discoveries of several new sites for this uncommon milkvetch in eastern Oregon. Consequently, disjunct populations previously reported from ash beds in Lassen County, California, are described as the new species Astragalus anxius, distinguished by root, inflorescence, pubescence, and floral characters. The morphology, natural history, and putative relationships of the two species are contrasted.
