The two rows of bristles (sometimes 3) on the nutlets are similar to L. squarrosa, but the latter has a longer corolla (2-3 mm) and shorter nutlets (3-4 mm long). Lappula occidentalis (often reported as L. redowskii) only has one row of bristles on the nutlets.
Known (2012) in ND and SD west of the MO River, nealy all of WY, and northeast UT (Rocky Mountain Herbarium website).
