I collected both places.

I would consider any rosy from a locale that is either from a rockpile in the middle of the desert or seperated by a ridge (Whietwater -Verbenia) to be called by theose seprate locales.

A lot of the desert rosy locales are almost like island pops which have been breeding with each other for thousands of years.

I am not saying the rosys are not found in flat desert (washes ect) but the more isolated the pop is the more it should be named after its exact locale.


Even in Trona they refer to the Homewood cyn rosy and the ones on the ridge as different. As well as the ones going down the other side to lower elevation.

Even in Borrego the really light hypo Borrego rosys are found in the lower east part of S22. Whereas other parts of the road they look different. Then go south down S2 toward Ocitilo you find the anery rosys.


The best part of what I used to do is find rosys in locales that are unkown. They literally are everywhere. I never could figure out why people go where other went (as if the rosys only exist there). One of my favorite spost was right off Hwy 62 on the west side almost down near I-10. There are washes there with tons of rosys if you walk at night. I even found them sitting on the curb of 62 watching the car headlights zoom by.

also all those rockpiles up in the high desert near the road on the way to Trona. Those small outcrops. yep , they are there also.
