Populations of C. vancouverensis are distributed from Alaska to Las Cabrillas, which is located south of Todos Santos, BCS. Several new localities are recorded for this species in the Gulf of California, and its southern limit in the Northeast Pacific is considered to lie within 23°N on both sides of the Baja California Peninsula. Furthermore, the taxonomic relationship of this species with C. pinnatifolia and C. frondescens is questioned based on morphological, ecological and distributional tendencies. -from Authors
