Plants killed by fire; burl absent; twigs glandular-hairy. Leaf-blades dull green, not glaucous, scabrous, glandular-hairy. Inflorescences: axis 1 mm diam. Ovaries glabrous. Fruits glabrous. Stones distinct.

Discussion

Subspecies wieslanderi occurs at middle elevations of the North Coast Range, southern Cascades, and northern Sierra Nevada (i.e., surrounding northern end of Sacramento Valley). Overlapping the elevational range of Arctostaphylos patula, it could be confused with that species.
