Some botanists consider this as a separate species from the Common Douglas-Fir (P. menziesii) and others as a natural variety. It differs from the common species or variety by having more nearly 2-ranked foliage, cones 4 to 7 inches long with the bracts extending only to the ends of the scales, and larger seed. It is only found growing in the San Berdino Mountains of far southern California and a little over the Mexican border into Baja California.
