Bioregional Distribution: KR, NCoR, CaRH, SNH, Teh, TR, PR, MP, n SNE, DMtns; Distribution Outside California: to central Oregon, Idaho, Colorado, northern Baja California. Note: Further study needed: most California, some Rocky Mountains plants would be called Abies concolor var. lowiana (Gordon) Lemmon were that taxon recognized; relationship of southern California plants (especially from DMtns) to generally Rocky Mtns Abies concolor var. concolor.
