Species In Genus: 12 species: southwestern United States, northwestern Mexico. Etymology: (Greek: like Bahia, an Asteraceae genus) Note: Bahiopsis tomentosa (A. Gray) E.E. Schill. & Panero collected twice in southern SCo in early 1900s, probably an escape from cultivation.
Unabridged Note: The two early California collections of Bahiopsis tomentosa (A. Gray) E.E. Schill. & Panero [not included in TJM (1993)] were from San Diego Co. Their status as escapes from cultivation is based on a 1933 annotation by SF Blake w/ref. to Zoe 5:260. [San Diego, 14Apr1906, M.E. Jones s.n., POM; slope near La Jolla, 300 ft., Sep 1919, M.E. Spencer 1644, POM]. Bahiopsis tomentosa is otherwise known from Baja California Sur.
