Platanthera elongata (Rydb.) R.M. Bateman[HC2]

Origin: Native

selected vouchers: WTU

Notes: Taxonomy follows FNA & JPM. Similar to Piperia unalascensis but with a longer spur. Reports of Piperia leptopetala from Klickitat Co., Washington (WS) presumably belong here. FNA treats Piperia leptopetala as a California endemic.

References: (none)
