Notes: FNA21: "Madia elegans occurs widely in California outside the deserts and in southwestern Oregon and locally in western Nevada and Washington. It is unusually variable in morphology, ecology, and phenology. Molecular data have indicated that D. D. Keck's (1959) infraspecific taxonomy for M. elegans needs revision."
