    1. Reviewed by Lee Dittmann    Jun 4, 2001

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

    Reviewer's comments:
         "Not Keckiella breviflora, which does not have the long tube seen in this image and is not red. Not enough information available to key it, but if it is shrubby it is probably a Keckiella, if not, then a Penstemon.

    Reviewer's comments:
         "The very narrow middle lobe of the lower lip makes this almost certainly P. rostriflorus, formerly known as P. bridgesii.
