TAXONOMY:
The currently accepted scientific name of Colorado pinyon is Pinus edulis Engelm. (Pinaceae) [26,41,73,84,85,109,133,166,167].

Where the ranges of both species overlap, Colorado pinyon frequently hybridizes with singleleaf pinyon (P. monophylla) [27,95,96,98,99,100,106]. The eastern edge of the Great Basin is the rough boundary between Colorado and singleleaf pinyons, and forms a "zone of hybridization" [95]. Colorado pinyon also hybridizes with Mexican pinyon (P. cembroides) [106].
