Variety wasatchensis is more broadly defined here than the “wasatchensis” of N. H. Holmgren (1997b). The variety is most distinct in the greater Wasatch Range and in the western Uinta Mountains, where plants are generally larger than other varieties with larger leaves, more elongated leaflets, and multi-headed inflorescences. Less distinctive populations extend along the Idaho-Wyoming border to southwestern Montana. Variety wasatchensis merges with var. gordonii at low elevations in Montana and Wyoming, and with the high-elevation phase assigned here to var. gordonii in Utah.
