Brittonia 16: 55, figs. 1A, 2A. 1964
Phenology: Flowering Feb–Apr; fruiting Oct.
Habitat: Coniferous and mixed forests with Chihuahua pine.
Elevation: 1700–2700 m.
Ariz., N.Mex., Mexico (Chihuahua, Durango, Sinaloa, Sonora).
Meiosis occurs in September, with fruits maturing 19 to 20 months after pollination; seeds germinate in April.
In the flora area, Arceuthobium gillii is found in the Chiricahua, Huachuca, Santa Catalina, and Santa Rita mountains of Arizona, and the Animas Mountains of New Mexico. Subspecies nigrum Hawksworth & Wiens, which occurs in the Sierra Madre Occidental and Oriental of Mexico, was subsequently elevated to species rank as A. nigrum (Hawksworth & Wiens) Hawksworth & Wiens. The two species are apparently allopatric but occur in the same mountain range in northern Durango, Mexico. Both form nonsystemic witches’ brooms on members of Pinus subsect. Leiophylla Loudon and are closely related as shown by molecular analyses (D. L. Nickrent et al. 2004).
