Arctostaphylos gabilanensis V. T. Parker and M. C. Vasey is a newly described diploid manzanita species from the Gabilan Mountains in San Benito and Monterey counties, CA. This species demonstrates characteristics that suggest a hybrid origin, with auriculate leaves similar to many maritime species, but also with inflorescence characters including large globose fruits and fused nutlets that indicate a relationship to A. glauca. Plants are restricted to soils of granitic origin between 300-700 m from just SE of Fremont Peak, south to near the northern boundary of the Pinnacles. We also provide a key to the northern auriculate-leaved Arctostaphylos species of the San Francisco Bay and Monterey Bay regions.
