Distribution Map of known localities for Yucca species.  These have been compiled from our field notes and published articles.  Map was made in Google fusion tables and you can apply filters to view just one or more  species.  The capsular-fruited species, Y. angustissima, Y. baileyi, Y. harrimaniae, and Y. glauca are difficult taxonomically and likely overlap in parts of NM, TX, and AZ.  Similarly, the distinction between Y. glauca and Y. glauca arkansana needs more investigation. More research on these species and their contact zones is needed to determine species boundaries.  The distributions for these species are tentative at this point.
