Currant Creek

O'Neil Deeth County Road crosses Currant Creek here, near St. Mary's River Ranch.

Post (1956) states that there is a Marcus E. Jones collection of Frasera albomarginata made October 8, 1924 from the "Currant Creek Mountains" of Elko County. Vouchers are at POM and NY.

The New York Botanical Garden online records (http://nybg.org) report three collections by Marcus E. Jones from Nevada with names including "Currant." On 31 July 1923, Jones collected Eriogonum microthecum Nutt. var. lapidicola Reveal at the Currant Creek Mountains (NY282222). On the same day, he also collected Ivesia sabulosa (M. E. Jones) D. D. Keck at Currant Creek (NY834049). There are no other collections in this location until 8 October 1924 when Jones collected Frasera albomarginata S. Watson at the Currant Creek Mountains (NY188578).

Currant Creek drains the Snake Mountains to the east. It's possible that Jones thought the name for those mountains was "Currant Creek Mountains."
