Monographs Details: Sophora moorcroftiana (Benth.) Benth. & Baker
Authority: Isely, Duane. 1981. Leguminosae of the United States. III. Subfamily Papilionoideae: tribes Sophoreae, Podalyrieae, Loteae. Mem. New York Bot. Gard. 25 (3): 1-264.
Discussion:As S. davidii of China, but more velutinous and thornier. Hammermannia. Rudd (1972). I have seen two U.S. collections identified as Sophora moorcroftiana that look like the usual S. davidii to which I refer them. Perhaps the two taxa should be treated as geographic elements of one species.
