Saxifraga bronchialis, Linn. Dwarf, cespitose, 4-8 in. high: sts. ascending, densely foliose at the base; fl.-sts. few- lvd.: lvs. stiffish, almost leathery, gray-green, shiny, linear-lanceolate, margin ciliate or spinulose: infl. few or many-fld., paniculate, borne on erect-spreading glandulose pedicels: fls. yellowish white with orange-red dots; calyx-lobes oblong-lanceolate, rather obtuse, glabrous; petals oblong, 3-nerved, twice as long as the calyx-lobes. May. Asia and Alaska.—The material from the Cascade Mts. of Wash. to Alberta and southward along the Rocky Mts. to New Mex., which has passed as S. bronchialis, has been separated under the name of S. austromontana, Wiegand (S. bronchialis, Pursh, not Linn. Leptasea austromontana, Small). It differs from S. bronchialis in its more subulate, darker green lvs., more slender often purple sts., more slender pedicels, smaller white petals with purple dots above and not clawed at the base. S. austromontana is probably not in cult.

Var. cherlerioides, Engl. (S. cherlerioides, Don. S. Stelleriana, Merck., also spelled Stellariana. Leptasea cherlerioides, Small). Densely cespitose, with the caudicles very densely imbricate-leafy: lvs. short, flat above, convex below, somewhat spatulate, acute- mucronate: fl.-sts. shorter, 2-3 in. high, few-fld., glandulose or glabrous: fls. white; calyx-lobes rather obtuse. May. Asia and N. Amer., Unalaska, Bering Straits. CH
