    1. Reviewed by Lars Rosengreen    Aug 12, 2014

    Action: changed name from "Leptosiphon montanus" to "Leptosiphon ciliatus "

    Reviewer's comments:
         "Both L. montanus and L. ciliatus often also have similar markings on corolla lobes. L. montanus is usually found at lower elevations than where this photo was taken and also has significantly larger corollas. There are also no verified collections of this species from the Lake Tahoe Basin, either in Smith's (1984) Flora for the region or indexed through the CCH."
