Dear All,
      The Electronic Atlas of the Plants of British Columbia shows Saxifraga 
tischii as a synonym of Saxifraga rufidula (link below).  However, most 
databases still show S. tischii as a good species based on morphological 
differences (unfortunately NCBI shows no molecular sequences for S. 
tischii).  Anyone have any opinions on whether they are conspecific or not?  
Perhaps S. tischii is a good species, but only occurs in Washington State 
(not also in British Columbia as was once thought)?
