Astragalus lentiginosus

Douglas ex Hooker 1831
(Fabaceae/Leguminosae)

...the most annoying group of forms in the genus (Jones 1895: 672).
...the most variable of all Astragali (Jones 1923: 123).
...ill-defined and perhaps chimerical (Barneby, 1945 p. 65).
...an excessively polymorphic complex which embraces a range of variation far greater than can appear reasonable (Barneby 1964: 912).
