Phytotaxa 185 (1) © 2014 Magnolia Press 101

Distribution: ―Native. Bromus lanatipes   is known only from northern Coahuila in México, near the United States border ( Fig. 52). In the United States its range includes western Texas, New México, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Colarado and Wyoming ( Pavlick & Anderton 2007).

Ecology: — Bromus lanatipes   is found along ridgetops and steep slopes; associated with Pinus spp.   , Abies   , Pseudotsuga menziesii   , Quercus spp.   , Juniperus   , Cupressus arizonica   , Arbutus   , Salvia   , Salix Linnaeus (1753: 1753)   , Rhamnus   and Ceanothus   . Elevation: 1676–2627 m.

Common Names: ―Woolly brome, shaggy brome (English); bromo veluludo (Spanish).

Comments: ― Bromus lanatipes   is distinguished by its lanate lower sheaths. Aphotograph of this character is given in Allred (1993: 334). Circumscribing this taxon required examination of material from the adjacent United States, which is cited below.
