Other plants
Caution: these lists are in a very preliminary stage and are by no means even close to being all-inclusive. Please also note that just because a species isn't listed here or on the Rare Plants page does not mean that it isn't rare. It may have been missed, it may have been collected but not yet named or it may have not been discovered yet!
High priority species to be eventually included in Rare plants section as soon as write-up/drawings/photos are available and/or which couldn't be included due to time limitations/other priorities
Species with insufficient information
Species having taxonomic questions
Species vulnerable but either without sufficient threats and/or more common than originally thought (elsewhere if not in Utah), or where rarity is in question, or while narrowly restricted relatively abundant in its range
Watch: species that are endemic and vulnerable or potentially vulnerable, or state rare
Species that are no longer considered to be a valid taxon
