Notes

This species is known from the nearby San Rafael Swell as two varieties: Eriogonum inflatum var. inflatum   and Erigonum inflatum var. fusiforme   (Small) Reveal ( Harris 1983). These two varieties have been differentiated by substrate (fine textured shales on the Colorado Plateau in var. fusiforme   , vs. coarse sandstone in var. inflatum   ), root and caudex size, and annual vs. perennial life history ( Harris 1983). Reveal (2005), who we follow here, ascribe var. fusiforme   to an "annual phase", and do not recognize these varieties. Eriogonum inflatum   was common in the deserts surrounding MDRS (Fig. 44).
