    1. Reviewed by Lars Rosengreen    Aug 12, 2014

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

    Reviewer's comments:
         "L. ciliatus in the Lake Tahoe region has these markings. Also the corollas in this picture are much too small for L. montanus. L. montanus is not known to occur in the Tahoe Basin, it's only known from lower elevations in this region of the Sierra Nevada."
