Notes

This species was commonly encountered on the plateau immediately southwest of MDRS. Previously reported for the nearby San Rafael Swell as Erioneuron pulchellum   (Kunth) Tateoka ( Harris 1983), recent work has placed this species in the monotypic genus Dasyochloa   ( Caro 1981, Valdés-Reyna 2003).
