The Quinn Flat / Kenworthy Area is a rich and interesting area for plants despite being a basically-flat area with an elevation range of only 150 feet, from 4450 to 4600 feet, in most of its area, with a small area extending 200 feet higher in elevation, to 4800 feet. Its diversity is due primarily to the low hills of the Bautista Formation, which provide slopes facing all points of the compass, as well as old remnant surfaces that host rare plants such as Boechera johnstonii, Johnston's rock cress; and Penstemon californicus, California penstemon.

The boundary for our Quinn Flat / Kenworthy Area Flora is shown in Fig. 2, along with the areas we have surveyed. The boundary on the northeast was set to include all areas easily accessed from trailheads in the Quinn Flat / Kenworthy area. It turned out that the 4600 foot contour matched well the easily-accessed area from Quinn Flat, but the easily-accessed area near the Kenworthy Fire Station extends to almost 4800 feet, primarily because the elevation along SR74 is 200 feet higher in that area.

Fig. 2. The boundary for the Quinn Flat / Kenworthy Area Flora is outlined in black. The southwestern boundary is SR74, the Palms to Pines Highway. The northeastern boundary is the 4600 foot elevation contour except in the Kenworthy area, where the boundary rises to the 4800 foot elevation contour. Short connections on the northwest and southeast close off the area. The red solid and dashed lines represent some of our surveys in this area. The area to the southwest of SR74 is in the Ramona Trail floral area.

Fig. 3 shows where we have GPS points for species, excluding the GPS points for a few targeted species such as Boechera johnstonii that have hundreds of GPS points. As of 26 May 2018, we have 475 species GPS points. Unfortunately, in our survey of the Kenworthy area on 26 May 2012, no GPS points were taken, so some species observed only in that survey do not yet have GPS points.

Fig. 3. The red dots show the locations where we have taken GPS points for observed species.

The 475 species GPS points are of 258 separate species. 118 species have just a single point; 94 species have two points; and 46 species have three to eight points. We have observed 301 species, so 43 observed species do not yet have GPS points.

Our survey coverage shown in Fig. 2 is much more extensive than represented by the GPS points in Fig. 3, since we generally take only a single point for each species the first time we encounter it. Fig. 3 gives some idea of where the diversity in species are. The combination of Figs. 2 and 3 show where it might be profitable to target future surveys.

The Checklist

The following gives some basic information about this checklist.

See:

An asterisk before the common name indicates a non-native species.

This list has been compiled from vouchers, and from three surveys done in the Quinn Flat / Kenworthy area specifically to record the taxa seen, as well as literally hundreds of surveys by Bruce Watts to explore the flora of this area.

The column #V gives the number of vouchers, truncated at 9, in the Quinn Flat / Kenworthy area. Due to the imprecision of the locality for some vouchers, some vouchered species are probably not actually present in this area. In particular, the "town" of Kenworthy was formerly present where the community of Thomas Mountain is now, at the mouth of Pipe Creek, which is just outside our floral boundary. Hence some of the vouchers with just Kenworthy in their locality may have been taken from there.

The column labeled #Pls gives a minimum estimate of the number of plants from the field surveys in the area east of Quinn Flat to Kenworthy, up to a maximum of 99 plants, for species seen in the field surveys for which abundances were noted. A few species have no abundance estimates, with an x indicating a species observed by Bruce Watts and JZ a species observed by Jordan Zylstra.
