The following State-listed taxa have been rejected from the sixth edition of the Inventory for taxonomic reasons, and do not appear in the list below: Arctostaphylos edmundsii var. parvifolia (CR), Arctostaphylos pacifica (CE), Agrostis blasdalei var. marinensis (CR), Caulanthus stenocarpus (CR), and Mahonia sonnei (CE). Erysimum menziesii (CE) has been split into three subspecies in the Inventory; all are protected by State law. Note also that the list below uses the nomenclature adopted in the Inventory, which in a few cases differs from that of the State of California. Entries in this Inventory give the name under which a taxon is State-listed if it differs from the name used here.
