    Orobanche fasciculata, based on distribution. Note though, that this should be recollected by a botanist who will deposit a specimen in an herbarium collection, as there are no nearby British Columbia specimens from that area documented on E-Flora BC.

    Is it possible to communicate with the someone to get an exact location? I can then send that info along to some people doing fieldwork in the area this summer and next.

    hi Dan
    we work for fish and wildlife here in FSJ and I think the person who collected it already got in touch with somebody at UBC, but I'll be sure and pass your message along
