Terlingua Brickellbush (Brickellia brachyphyllai var. terlinguensis)


The Terlingua Brickellbush is a variety of the Plumed Brickellbush (Brickellia brachyphylla (A. Gray) A. Gray) (see photo below); it is, or maybe was, restricted to the Chisos Mountains in Brewster County in western Texas, USA.

This form might now be extinct.

Gila Brickellbush (Brickellia chenopodina)


The Gila Brickellbush is known only from the type that was collected in 1903 from alluvial soil at the river bank of the Gila River in Grant County, New Mexico, USA.

The species was never found since and is considered extinct.


The species is not accepted by all botanists and is considered by some to be an aberrant individual of the Chihuahuan Brickellbush (Brickellia floribunda A. Gray) (see photo below).
