The common ash of NW Baja California is usually called Fraxinus trifoliata, as in Wiggins' (1980) flora of Baja California. That name is a misspelling of F. trifoliolat, which is a later homonym of F. rriJoliolara W. W. Smith (1916). The Baja Californian ash is therefore renamed Fraxinus parryi. It has also been misidentified as F. jonesii. The common name is "crucecilla". This ash barely extends into San Diego County, California.
