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.

Variety entrada is distinguished by its relatively large size, stiff stems (woody) and leaves, tomentulose phyllaries, and white corollas. It is similar to var. arizonica. Unlike other varieties, it has involucre apices somewhat spreading. Chromosome counts indicate that these plants are asexual triploids (A. S. Tomb, pers. comm.). Variety entrada is locally abundant in Arches National Park, near Moab.

Variety entrada is distinguished by its relatively large size, stiff stems (woody) and leaves, tomentulose phyllaries, and white corollas. It is similar to var. arizonica. Unlike other varieties, it has involucre apices somewhat spreading. Chromosome counts indicate that these plants are asexual triploids (A. S. Tomb, pers. comm.). Variety entrada is locally abundant in Arches National Park, near Moab.
