Eastern Mojave Vegetation Panaca Valley, Lincoln County, Nevada.


(= Meadow Valley)

The state of Nevada preserves this name of "Panaca Valley" in identifying the Panaca Valley watershed. However, the USGS GNIS identifies this valley as Meadow Valley.

Averett (1963) lists Panaca and Meadow Valley as valid southern Nevada place names, but does not mention "Panaca Valley."

There are some botanical collections, notably those of Marie Gentry made in 1941, which give the collecting locality as Panaca Valley and vicinity.

Elevation: 4722ft.
