06/07/2001 Jerry Chmielewski  taxon changed Antennaria alpina (Rocky Mountain Pussytoes) Antennaria microphylla (littleleaf pussytoes)
In reviewing photos on the site I noted that those for Antennaria dioica and A. alpina are A. microphylla. The dioica epithet as it is being used, or I believe is being used is a throwback to Jepson. A recent article (in Madrono) states that true A. dioica occurs in CA, but Bayer does not accept the identification, referring it to an atypical media var. alpina!
