    1. Reviewed by James Morefield    Feb 12, 2001

    Action: changed name from "Filago californica" to "Micropus californicus var. californicus "

    Reviewer's comments:
         "The depressed head shape and copiously woolly harp-shaped paleae are unmistakable for this taxon. Filago californica has ovoid heads with more sparsely appressed-woolly paleae. All of the CalPhotos entries currently identified as Filago californica are instead Micropus californicus var. californicus.
