Origin: Native

selected vouchers: WTU

Notes: From FNA5 regarding R. salicifolius:"Rumex salicifolius occurs mostly in southern and central California; it has been reported also from adjacent parts of Arizona (N. M. Sarkar 1958) and Nevada (J. T. Kartesz 1987, vol. 1). The name R. salicifolius has been applied in a broad sense to nearly all species of subsect. Salicifolii, including even mostly Asian R. sibiricus. Rumex salicifolius appears to be most closely related to R. californicus and R. utahensis.

J. T. Kartesz (1987, vol. 1) reported Rumex transitorius from Washoe County, Nevada; the morphological characters mentioned in his description suggest another taxon of the R. salicifolius aggregate. Records from Idaho also need confirmation."
