Jump to: navigation, search


Long known as Filago californica, Logfia filaginoides is relatively common in the Californian Floristic Province south of Humboldt County, California, to northern Baja California Sur (including Channel Islands, and Angel de la Guarda, Cedros, and Guadalupe islands in Mexico). Eastward, it is scattered to southwestern Utah and western Texas. An 1893 gathering labeled “Blue Lakes, Snake Plains” is of uncertain origin.
