Simpson_etal2017_1411-cpDNA cladogram
Mabry_Simpson2018_63-concat cladogram
Cladograms from: Top, Simpson et al. 2017:1411, cpDNA results; Bottom, Mabry and Simpson 2018, concatenated results.
In all these results, Cryptantha utahensis is part of a well-supported clade with C. pterocarya, C. mohavensis, C. oxygona, and C. gracilis (3 of these,
including C. utahensis, in Johnston's series Pterocaryae), this clade sister to one including C. nevadensis and C. scoparia.
