Based on a recent study (Semple et al. 2017), Plants of the World Online (POWO) elevated the varieties of this subspecies to species level. It is widely expected that other taxonomic authorities will soon elevate the variety to species status, but as of this writing (3/21/2021) they have not. When they do, this subspecies will be obsolete.
