Brodiaea is differentiated from Dichelostemma by a flowering stem that is generally straight not curved or twisted, an umbel that is typically open, not dense, and the presence of three sterile stamens (staminodes) instead of appendages that are crown-like, forming a tube outside the anthers.
Brodiaea coronaria is found in the hills of northern and central California, usually in meadows, often in clay, gravely alkaline soil and extends north to Oregon and Washington and southern British Columbia.

Brodiaea pallida is an erect, herbaceous perennial plant belonging to the lily family (Liliaceae).
Brodiaea pallida, Calyptridium pulchellum, and Verbena californica were all described prior to 1960 and were included in Philip Munz and David Keck's, ``A California Flora of California, 1959.'' The first State- wide inventory of rare plants was assembled by the California Native Plant Society (CNPS) in 1974.
Brodiaea pallida and Verbena californica occur in seeps, springs, and overflow channels, and in intermittent and perennial streams, respectively.

Brodiaea filifolia is a perennial herb in the Liliaceae (lily family) that produces leaves and flower stalks from dark-brown, fibrous-coated underground corms (underground bulb-like storage stem that lacks succulent leaves).
Brodiaea filifolia has also been found in the San Mateo Wilderness Area near the northern border of San Diego and Riverside counties and in the Miller Peak area in the Santa Ana Mountains of western Riverside County.
All of the Brodiaea filifolia on-site occurred in the Northwest parcel and was estimated to consist of 7,000 individuals.

Brodiaea filifolia, a member of the lily family (Liliaceae), was described by Watson (1882) based on a specimen collected by S. B and W. Parish in 1880 at Arrowhead Hot Springs, San Bernardino County, California (Niehaus 1971).
Brodiaea orcuttii (Greene) Baker was included as a variety of B. filifolia by Epson (1922) but subsequent authors have recognized this taxon as a distinct species (Niehaus 1971, Munz and Keck 1973, Munz 1974, Keator 1993).
Brodiaea filifolia and its suitable habitat have been significantly reduced by urbanization, agricultural conversion, and discing for fire and weed control.

 Brodiaea Jolonensis
Chromosome studies of a clonal population with strap-shaped staminodes in San Marcos indicate that this brodiaea may be a hexaploid variant of BTK or possibly an interspecific hybrid.
Most populations of Brodiaea in San Diego County have greenish ovaries (or with faint purple streaks) and appear to be Montane BTK or Coastal BTK.
Unfortunately, the fate of these rare brodiaea populations is dismal because of the rapid (uncontrolled) urbanization of northern San Diego County.

 10/6/2005~Draft Economic Analysis of Conservation Actions to Protect Thread-leaved Brodiaea Released
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service today released an analysis estimating costs of $24.5 to $43.6 million over the next 20 years for the conservation of the thread-leaved brodiaea (Brodiaea filifolia), a Federally threatened plant, on 9,403 acres of habitat containing features essential to the conservation of the plant.
A member of the lily family, thread-leaved brodiaea (Brodiaea filifolia) is a purple-flowered perennial found in portions of Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, and San Diego counties, California.
The proposed critical habitat for thread-leaved brodiaea includes areas where the plant is known to occur, including habitat that meets the plant's specific requirements for growth, reproduction and germination, seed bank maintenance, and gene flow.
