ThompsonCommented on georeferencingNot only are the coordinates of this record integers without refinement (34.00000, -118.00000), the collector identifies the collection site as "Las Flores Canyon 3.8 miles north of Coast Highway." ________However, Las Flores Canyon does not appear to be 3.8 miles long, and Las Flores Canyon &42;Road&42; changes its name after 3.5 miles. But there are three other observations of this species along Las Flores Canyon Road, up to 2.5 miles north of Coast Highway. ________Revised coordinates correspond to 3.8 highway miles north of PCH on Las Flores Canyon Road; these coordinates are probably within a mile of the original site but cannot be more precise than that.
