Physaria pulvinata (Brassicaceae), a new species from southwestern Colorado
Brassicaceae, Colorado, Cruciferae, Lesquerella, Physaria
Physaria pulvinata is described from isolated, grayish, argillaceous shale outcrops in Dolores and San Miguel Counties of southwestern Colorado. It may be distinguished from the related P. intermedia by its caespitose, mound-forming habit, and from P. navajoensis in that its fruits are pubescent. The new species keys to P. rectipes in available floras and monographs, and differs from that species in being mound-forming from a many-branched caudex. © 2006, by The New York Botanical Garden Press.
