Calif., Mexico (Baja California)
Variety clevelandii occurs primarily on the Peninsular Ranges of Riverside and San Diego counties. Although most populations from Baja California belong to var. brevibracteata, historical collections from northern Baja California by C. R. Orcutt (GH, ND-G, UC), including a syntype of Horkelia clevelandii, have the diagnostic features of var. clevelandii. Populations in San Diego County serve as the sole larval host plant for the federally endangered Laguna Mountains Skipper, Pyrgus ruralis lagunae Scott.
