Description: Two varieties of this species - Chamaebatia foliolosa Benth. - are recognized. The typical variety, bearmat, is an evergreen shrub, 15 to 60 cm tall, that grows between 600 and 2,100 m elevation on the western slopes of the Sierra Nevada in California. It occurs in open ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Dougl. ex Laws.) and in California red fir (Abies magnifica A. Murr.) forests (Munz and Keck 1963). Southern bearmat - C. foliolosa var. australis Brandg. - grows to a height of nearly 2 m on dry slopes in the chaparral type from San Diego County to Baja California.
