    Reviewer's comments:
         "Hey Gary! I don't think that this is Oxytropis borealis. O. borealis would have erect fruits that are straight, and probably more leaflets on each leaf. I'm not sure that it isn't some other Oxytropis, as I can't see the tip of the keel, but it looks rather Astragalus-like otherwise."
