Annotation History

Date Name Action Plant Name Before Changes Plant Name Changed to
Annotation Notes
01/07/2004 Robert E. Preston  taxon changed Brodiaea minor Brodiaea purdyi (Sierra Brodiaea)
I have sampled populations along Hwy 44, and they are all B. purdyi. Although the perianth as seen here is similar in shape to B. minor, the staminodes are narrower and more tightly inrolled, as in B. purdyi.
08/09/2006 Robert E. Preston  taxon changed Brodiaea purdyi Brodiaea minor
See Madrono 53(1): 49-54 (2006) for revised nomenclature.
