    1. Reviewed by Tony Morosco    Feb 20, 2001

    Action: changed name from "Fragaria chiloensis" to "Rubus sp. "

    Reviewer's comments:
         "I believe this to be a Rubus species, possibly Rubus parviflorus (thimbleberry). Note large, pubescent leaves and sepals; stamens arranged around periphery of receptacle; bluntly convex fruit (usually pointed, even at anthesis in Fragaria chiloensis); and crinkled petals (atypical of Fragaria, but typical of Rubus parviflorus).
