    1. Reviewed by Stephen Lowens    May 4, 2002

    Action: changed name from "Calochortus elegans" to "Calochortus subalpinus "

    Reviewer's comments:
         "This is a group of Calochortus that is difficult to separate. However, this photograph is at significant variance with all others identified for this species. The correct identification, Calochortus subalpinus, is a species which overlaps the rangeof C. elegans but is quite distinctive in coloring and petal shape. This species does not occur in California.
