Barbara Ertter explains why the name Rosa bridgesii Crépin ex Rydberg should be "conserved" (a technical term meaning allowed as an exception to the rules of taxonomic nomenclature) for a "relatively well-defined dwarf rose characteristic of mid-montane forests of the western Sierra Nevada and Cascade Range of California and southern Oregon" to which many different names have been given by botanists.
