Clasping Arnica (Arnica lanceolata prima): Fairly common perennial herb with yellow daisy-like flowers found in riparian areas, meadows and along roadsides.

Taxonomic changes make tracking collections a little difficult. In ARCTOS, most seem to be linked with A. lanceolata, while in e-Flora BC, more are associated strictly with A. lanceolata ssp. prima.

In ARCTOS, collections from throughout much of the region, though more weighted towards the outer coast. Gaps in the extreme south, and in the central inner islands and mainland, but probably occurs throughout.
