    Action: changed name from "Castilleja applegatei ssp. martinii" to "Castilleja miniata "

    Reviewer's comments:
         "This odd plant is close to C. miniata and may be a hybrid between C. miniata x C. linariifolia, the latter often being so colored on the east slopes of the Sierra Nevada. It is clearly NOT martinii. Note no sign of glandular hairs, no wavy-margined, leaves, and long, almost attenuate calyx lobes.
