Aquilegia coerulea var. pinetorum is very close to A. coerulea var. ochroleuca; leaf differences given by P. A. Munz (1946) do not hold up. The varieties may be reliably distinguished if data on variation in the whole population are available (mean spur length 40-48 mm in populations of A. coerulea var. ochroleuca, 50-58 mm in populations of A. coerulea var. pinetorum), but the range for individual flowers overlaps somewhat.
