I was kind of hoping this was a new-to-me dorid, but I think it's just a variant of D. albopunctata.

I guess you could call this A. intermedia under JM 2. The intermedia / menziesii distinction still seems pretty fuzzy to me, though.

Should have paid more attention to this. It didn't seem woody, but not obvious from this pic. Not sure what's meant by "Fr flat perpendicular to septum."

Description

Can anyone confirm this? Petals don't seem as splayed as they're supposed to be in C. crocea, but that seems like a variable feature. CalFlora definitely shows records from San Simeon State Park. Height was perhaps 15-30 cm off the ground.
