DescriptionDalea searlsiae (A. Gray) Barneby is commonly called Searls’ prairie clover. This species belongs to the Fabaceae or pea or legume family, Amorpheae tribe, Kuhnistera section, and Compactae series (Barneby 1977). Searls’ prairie clover was named after Fanny Searls, a 19-yearold botanist who first collected the species in 1871 in southeastern Nevada (Tiehm cited in Belofsky et al. 2014).
