Wed Dec 23 11:36:28 2015Stan SpencerWhat I didOther collections by Crampton from this area that he identified as "Orcuttia californica" have been annotated by more recent experts (Mary Barkworth UCR125097; A.C. Sanders UCR125107 and UCR125109)as O. viscida, which would have been a variety included in O. californica at the time he was collecting. Crampton collected many orcuttias from this area. Most he identified as O. californica var. viscida, but a few (including this one), he identified only to the species level (O. californica). His identification of this specimen as O. californica should therefore probably be interpreted as an incomplete identification on his part, rather than as an identification as "O. californica var. californica" and considered O. viscida. The location is far outside the expected range of O. californica.
