Character Abstract
Identification Comments:From A11GRA01NVUS: Molecular data indicate that this variety is closely allied to <i>E. crosbyae</i>, hence the new combination proposed here. The Pueblo Mountains wild buckwheat also shares a suite of characters with <i>E. crosbyae</i>. Both varieties share similar compact growth forms and have membranous, campanulate involucres with floccose teeth. The pubescence of the flowering stems differs between these two varieties. The flowering stems of <i>E. crosbyae </i>var. <i>mystrium </i>are glabrous, whereas those of <i>E. crosbyae </i>var. <i>crosbyae </i>are floccose to tomentose. <i>Eriogonum prociduum </i>occurs in the same general region of the Great Basin, although it and <i>E. crosbyae </i>var. <i>mystrium </i>never co-occur. These two taxa share similar growth forms, however, <i>E. crosbyae </i>var. <i>mystrium </i>exhibits more robust features (larger leaves and inflorescences). It is the size and appearance of the flowering stems that best differentiate these taxa. <i>Eriogonum crosbyae </i>var. <i>mystrium </i>has longer and thicker flowering stems, 0.6-1.1(-1.2) dm × >1 mm, which are generally green in color. The flowering stems of <i>E. prociduum </i>have shorter and n
