Aquilegia formosa var. hypolasia is endemic to the peninsular ranges of California and adjacent Baja California. It is very close to A. formosa var. truncata; occasional plants of var. hypoplasia from the Peninsular Ranges may be almost glabrous, and occasional plants of var. truncata may be almost as pubescent as var. hypoplasia.
