Not sure how this variety differs from the A utahensis without any 'variety' or supspecies after the name... but sure looks to be the same plant. Leaves without and widening, but not as narrow as some of the other subspecies... teeth prominent and leaves stiff ending in a soft, grasslike spine (split usually) and that great blue-green color of the others
