1. Washingtonia filifera (Linden ex André) H. Wendland ex A. de Bary, Bot. Zeitung (Berlin). 37: 61. 1879.

California fan palm, palmier évantail de Californie

Pritchardia filifera Linden ex André, Ill. Hort. 21: 28. 1874; Neowashingtonia filifera (Linden) Sudworth; Pritchardia filamentosa H. Wendland ex Fenzi; Washingtonia filamentosa (H. Wendland ex Fenzi) Kuntze; W. filifera var. arizonica (O. F. Cook ex Annon.) M. E. Jones; W. filifera var. typica M. E. Jones

Stems massive, to 1.5 m 100--150 cm diam. 2n = 36.

Flowering spring--summer. Native to desert washes, seeps, and springs where underground water is continuously available; of conservation concern; 100--1200 m; Ariz., Calif., Nev.; Mexico (Baja California).

L. H. Bailey (1936) cited S. Watson, not H. Wendland, as the combining authority of this species, believing that Wendland did not explicitly make the new combination. The combination was made, however, by the journal editor, Anton de Bary, in the index to the volume, appearing on page (column) LXI. Hence, de Bary, not Watson, is the combining author (J. L. Strother, pers. cComm.).

Naturalized populations of this species were reported at four sites in Nevada (J. W. Cornett 1987) and in Death Valley National Monument, California (J. W. Cornett 1988). L. R. McClenaghan and A. C. Beauchamp (1986) found low genetic variation among populations of Washingtonia filifera. V. J. Miller (1983) discussed the history and setting of W. filifera in Arizona.
