    1. Reviewed by James Morefield    Oct 11, 2003

    Action: changed name from "Castilleja pilosa" to "Castilleja nana "

    Reviewer's comments:
         "Based on what I can see in the photograph, this keys to C. nana in both the Jepson Manual and the Intermountain Flora treatment (1984, vol. 4, p. 478-482). While I have also encountered White Mountain plants that approach C. pilosa in general habit, they always key to C. nana on technical characteristics, and no authentic C. pilosa has yet been documented from the White Mountains.
