05/28/2003 Mark Egger  taxon changed Castilleja nana Castilleja piersonii
This is not C. nana for numerous reasons. The long galea alone rules out C. nana. It is an unusually yellowish specimen of C. piersonii (bracts reddish with a bright yellow corolla, more typically. N.B.: I do not follow Chuang & Heckards's reduction of this to a synonym of C. parviflora. My research indicates unequivocally that C. piersonii is a good species, probably evolved as a southern isolate from the northern C. parviflora complex.
05/28/2003 Mark Egger  taxon changed Castilleja piersonii Castilleja peirsonii
This note is simply to correct my sloppy typing of the name of this taxon, correctly spelled Castilleja peirsonii
06/10/2004 Dora Jakobsdottir  taxon changed Castilleja peirsonii Castilleja parviflora (Mountain Indian Paintbrush)
Synonym updated.
