    1. Reviewed by Lee Dittmann    Jan 2, 2002

    Action: changed name from "Penstemon sp." to "Keckiella breviflora "

    Reviewer's comments:
         "The genus Keckiella was split from the genus Penstemon. The "gaping" appearance of the flowers in this image are typical of many Keckiella. According to the key in Hickman, the upper lip exceeding the length of the tube and throat eliminates all but K. antirrhinoides and K. breviflora. The color of the flower then identifies it as K. breviflora, which I am also familiar with in the wild.
