Abstract

Eriogonum evanidum Reveal is an annual herb in the buckwheat family that is endemic to southern California, USA and northern Baja California, Mexico. It was described by James Reveal in 2004 and was determined to be extinct due to the lack of recent observations and accessioned specimen collections. During field surveys conducted in 2007 and 2008 this species was rediscovered across its known range in southern California. Three of 10 historic occurrences that were presumed extirpated were located. One new occurrence was documented in the vicinity of Holcomb Valley, San Bernardino Mountains, CA. Location and habitat information are provided and the current conservation status of this species is discussed.
