Abstract

Collections made in Yavapai and Coconino counties, Arizona, previously identified as Scutellaria potosina, are here described as new varieties, one in S. potosina and the other in S. platyphylla. Variety occidentalis increases the range of the 5. platypftylla, a species endemic to central Arizona, northwest to the Upper Verde Watershed. Variety kaibabensis brings the total number of varieties of S. potosina to nine and represents the northern and western-most populations of that widespread, Chihuahuan desert species.
