This prostrate plant was encountered on the plateau immediately southwest of MDRS (Fig. 45). This species was previously recorded for the nearby San Rafael Swell as Eriogonum shockleyi var. longilobum   (M.E. Jones) S. Stokes ( Harris 1983), though varieties are not recognized in later treatments ( Welsh et al. 1993, Reveal 2005).
