Variety doloresensis is distinguished by its much-branched stems, almost filiform leaves, and smooth cypselae. It is known only from the Dolores River valley and is similar to var. dianthopsis, which is distinguished by being less branched and by having broader leaves.

Lygodesmia grandiflora is recognized mainly by its relatively large corollas. Some variants were segregated as distinct species by A. S. Tomb; because of intermediates, putative hybrids, and associated identification problems, it is probably best to recognize these as varieties pending further investigation (A. Cronquist 1994; S. L. Welsh et al. 2003).

Tomb; because of intermediates, putative hybrids, and associated identification problems, it is probably best to recognize these as varieties pending further investigation (A. Cronquist 1994; S. L.
