A small, disjunct Pseudotsuga menziesii stand within the Pinus muricata forest on the Purisima Hills, Santa Barbara County, California, is described. This relic population is 90 miles southeast of the previously reported southern limit of the species within California. The limit was the Santa Lucia Mountains of Monterey County. This discovery reduces the present geographic isolation between the closely related species P. menziesii and P. macrocarpa to 21 miles.
