Status of name
This name is of an entity that is currently accepted taxonomically.
Bossea plumosa Manza
Type locality: Moss Beach, San Mateo Co., California (Silva 1979: 319).

Adjective (Latin), feathery (Stearn 1973).
Bossea plumosa Manza 1937
Pachyarthron plumosum (Manza) C.W.Schneider & M.J.Wynne 2007
Confirmed by DNA sequence from Haida Gwaii, British Columbia, Canada south to Pacific Grove, Monterey Co., California. Within this range the species is disjunct with distinct populations in Haida Gwaii and Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada and in California, USA. The report by Stewart (1991) from southern California is Bossiella dichotoma, not B. plumosa; the report by Lindstrom (1977) from Sitka, Alaska is not this species. It is very doubtful that the report by Perestenko (1994) from eastern Russia is B. plumosa. - (29 Nov 2015) - Paul Gabrielson
