The California populations of Trichocoronis wrightii have been described as "adventive" and "native to Texas." Trichocoronis wrightii var. wigginsii R. M. King & H.

It differs from var. wrightii in its taller, mostly unbranched stems, greater number of flowers per head, and less thickened carpopodial cells (King and Robinson 1970b).
