Gentianopsis and Gentiana in Nevada: old collections, new localities, and a new species.

We review several old mysteries in the collections and literature of Gentianaceae in Nevada. We have solved some of these, including the little-known collecting detour of Coville and Leiberg into the state and their “Boat Corral,” locality, which has been in question since Gillett’s 1957 monograph of Gentianella. We report on additions to the flora of the Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge and review the evidence for a new species of Gentianopsis to be named after Hugh Iltis.
