Taxon_split-aaaaaa-48px Taxonomic Split 8787 (Committed on 2014-10-01)

Papenfuss and Parham split the legless lizard into 5 spcies. If you're north of Ventura its Anniella pulchra sensu stricto if you're south of Ventura its Anniella stebbensi and if you're in Kern County it could be one of three other very localized species - none such observations on iNat at the time of this split

According to iNat favored sources (GoBotany and ThePlantList) S.valerandi ssp. parviflorus is the accepted name, although Weakley and some other sources believe that this taxon warrants specific status. Incorrect to have them as separate taxa, in either case, so I am combining according to the former scheme.

See http://bugguide.net/node/view/438 for the details, but apparently the original spelling only had one "n" and that was actually an accepted spelling of the state's name at the time.
