Isoetes howellii Engelm.
Habit: Plant becoming terrestrial. Leaf: deciduous, < 30 cm, rigid, not brittle, tapered to tip, bright green; base +- brown to black. Chromosomes: 2n=22.
Ecology: Vernal pools, lake margins; Elevation: generally < 1500(2900) m. Bioregional Distribution: KR, NCoR, CaR, SNF, n SNH, GV, CCo, SnFrB, SCoR, SCo, PR; Distribution Outside California: to Washington, Montana, Utah. Note: Small plants of SCo, Washington, Baja California (leaf < 10 cm, female spore < 0.42 mm) are assignable to Isoetes howellii var. minima (A.A. Eaton) N. Pfeiff., recognition of which remains questionable pending further research, although it is +- clear that it should not be treated as an infraspecific taxon of Isoetes howellii. Spores mature late spring, summer.
