Abstract

Two new species in the Navarretia pubescens (Bentham) Hooker & Arnott complex of section Mitracarpium Brand are described: N. gowenii L. A. Johnson and N. ojaiensis Elvin, J. M. Porter & L. A. Johnson. Navarretia gowenii is known from disjunct locations in Contra Costa and Stanislaus counties of California. Navarretia ojaiensis is known from Ventura County, California. Additionally, examination of type specimens suggests N. mitracarpa Greene, presently placed in synonymy under N. pubescens, be recognized as a species distinct from the latter taxon, whereas N. jaredii Eastwood be recognized as a synonym of N. mitracarpa.
