    Action: changed name from "Trifolium monanthum var. monanthum" to "Trifolium monanthum ssp. parvum "

         "hairy herbage, low elev. Unusually pink for parvum?"

    2. Reviewed by Randall Morgan    Sep 27, 2014

    Action: changed name from "Trifolium monanthum ssp. parvum" to "Trifolium monanthum subsp. tenerum "

    Reviewer's comments:
         "Reconsidered this. The acute, veiny, bristly-toothed leaves, shaggy-hairy petioles and broad, pink-speckled banner are all good indicators of subsp. tenerum. Seems a bit far north, but not unreasonably."
