Character Abstract
Identification Comments:Confident ID requires careful examination of basal leaves and mature fruit.
Subspecies Comments:
Lookalikes:Similar to Arabis inyoensis, and especially to A. cobrensis in the shape and pubescence of the basal leaves, but with fruits and pedicels ascending.
Phenology Comments:
Reproduction Comments:May hybridize occasionally with Arabis inyoensis or other species.
Habitat Comments:Dry, open, rocky, high or north-facing slopes or exposed summits of granitic or rhyolitic material, on moisture-accumulating microsites in sagebrush associations within the pinyon-juniper and mountain sagebrush zones.
Ecology Comments:
Inventory Comments:Surveys extensive but incomplete, with much potential habitat remaining unexamined. The true total population may be 4-10 times the size currently known.
