Abstract

Reports of larch dwarf mistletoe Arceuthobium laricis parasitizing alpine larch Larix lyallii are based on two collections of this host/parasite combination made by J.R. Weir in Montana during the early 1900s. Examination of host material from these collections indicates that the host is western larch L. occidentalis, not alpine larch as previously reported. -from Authors
