“about one day’s journey west of Santa Fe, New Mexico”.
Has been suggested as perhaps conspecific with P. superciliosus, but genetic data refute close relationship#R. Phylogenetic analyses reveal two strongly supported clades: in E (Rocky Mts and Great Basin) and W (Sierra Nevada and Cascades)#R. However, geographical variation largely clinal and races intergrade; other proposed races are wasatchensis (Wasatch Mts, in Utah), included in inyoensis, but sometimes in nominate, and grinnelli (Idaho) and abbreviatus (California), merged with baileyae. Birds in Davis Mts (SW Texas) have been proposed as a further race based on small size. Four subspecies recognized.
