Scanned 25 Feb 2014.

Coll. No. 925, 25 May 2013, characters observed: Woody shrub, 1-2 m.; Stem, glabrous, thorns 0; Leaves, ±evenly distributed on branches, simple, petiole 4 mm. + blade 18 mm. × 10-12 mm. wide, not leathery, margin entire to distally toothed, abaxially glabrous in flower, few hairs on petioles, adaxial leaf surface, and proximal margins, deciduous unknown; Petals, #5, obovate, 10 mm × 5 mm. wide; Ovary inferior, top glabrous; Styles 3; Fruit, unknown (plant in flower).

Although thought to be different when collected, this is the same taxon as Coll. No. 926, including the somewhat unusual combination of characters typical of A. utahensis, i.e., number of styles and narrow shape of leaf, with absence of hairs on ovary and abaxial leaf suggesting A. alnifolia var. pumila.
