Notes: FNA21: "Layia glandulosa occurs in deserts of western North America, extending to the Pacific coast in central and southern California. As treated here (provisionally) and previously, L. glandulosa corresponds to a paraphyletic group; molecular phylogenetic data have indicated that L. discoidea is most closely related to a subset of lineages in L. glandulosa, including yellow-rayed populations previously recognized as subsp. lutea or var. lutea (B. G. Baldwin, unpubl.). Report of L. glandulosa from British Columbia has not been confirmed."
