  Rosaceae Prunus emarginata
Photographed 20 May 2013.

Coll. No. 926, 25 May 2013, characters observed: Woody shrub, 1-2 m.; Stem, glabrous, thorns 0; Leaves, ±evenly distributed on branches, simple, petiole 4 mm. + blade 17 mm. × 8-9 mm. wide, not leathery, margin entire to distally toothed, abaxially glabrous in flower, few hairs on petioles, adaxial leaf surface, and proximal margins, deciduous unknown; Petals, #5, obovate, 10 mm × 5 mm. wide; Ovary inferior, top glabrous; Styles 3; Fruit, unknown (plant in flower).

Somewhat ambiguous, in that is has some characteristics of A. utahensis, i.e., number of styles and narrow shape of leaf, but absence of hairs on ovary and abaxial leaf suggest A. alnifolia var. pumila.
