Description Meehan (1898: 17) and others incorrectly identify this specimen as Anemone quinquefolia L. (Sp. Pl.: 541. 1753), an eastern North American species (see Dutton et al., 1997). The Lewis collection was made on 15 Jun 1806 when the party was along the Lolo Trail in Idaho Co., Idaho. Here Lewis and Clark were north of Lolo Creek and camped that evening along Eldorado Creek near the mouth of Lunch Creek (Moulton, 1993: 25-27).
