(3105.) S. occidentalis, Watson, Proced. Amer. Acad., XV., 264.
"Resembling S. Virginiensis; leaves often more or less densely rufous tomentose beneath; infloresence open, glabrous or somewhat glandular-pubescent; calyx free from the pistils, cleft nearly or quite to the base, the segments very obtuse, not reflexed; petals white, oblong-obovate, obtuse; filaments slender; seeds with a loose, smooth testa. From the Rocky Mountains of British America (Drummond) to British Columbia." (Lyall.) Summit of Mount Finlayson, 10 miles from Victoria; on Mount Arrowsmith, Vancouver Island, altitude 5500 feet; also at Yale and Lytton, B.C., 1889. (Macoun.)
(700.) S. reflexa, Hook.; Macoun, Cat., I., 152.
On small islands in the entrance to the North Arm Of Burrard Inlet, B.C. 1889. (Macoun.)
(706.) S. Stellaris, Linn., var. comosa, Poir; Macoun, Cat., I., 153.
Under this we placed, in Part I, S. foliosa, E. Br , as a synonym. Specimens since collected in the Selkirk Mountains and Gold Range of British Columbia, are Robert Brown's species, but very far from being S. stellaris, var. comosa, which is an unbranching form.
"Radical leaves cuneiform, slightly toothed; scapes divided, the branches one-flowered at the summit, and at their base clothed with a cluster of minute fascicled leaves; calyx inferior, obovate; limb of the petals cordate-lanceolate. Seems to be distinct from S. stellaris by the dense clusters of little leaves on the scapes, the flowers are few (or none), the obovate calyx, and particularly by the lamina of the equal petals being cordate at the base." (B. Brown.) On Bear Creek, Roger's Pass, Selkirk Mountains, and on the Gold Range at Griffin Lake, B.C. (Macoun.) Mount Queest, Shuswap Lake, B.C. 1889. (J. M. Macoun.)
