noteworthy Astragalus observations

September 25, 2022
Astragalus convallarius from British Columbia. https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/127922434
No prior documentation north of Helena, Montana. Location appears to be accurate - observed with other plants typical of the location.

September 17, 2022
Astragalus gibbsii from Douglas County, Nevada. No previous county record found.
the second observation is more prostrate than usual, but accounted for in Barneby's description
No records of any Astragalus collections in CCH2 or Seinet from Genoa Peak east of Lake Tahoe - appears to be a very poorly collected location. TIL Carson City was in Ormsby County until 1969, now it is an independent municipality, but considered Carson county for census purposes.

September 7, 2022
Astragalus proximus in Cibola County, New Mexico. No previous county record found, and a range extension of ca. 40km to the south. But the Navajo Nation is very poorly represented in herbarium databases, so likely more widespread in the area. https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/126512654

Astragalus tioides - perhaps the first record from Guanajuato?

June, 2022
Astragalus brauntonii in Baja California! Also, a potential new species...

April, 2021

Astragalus mollissimus documented for Idaho.
There is a herbarium specimen from 1998, but it is was identified by Welsh as A. purshii and not included in his FNA treatmen
