Some kind of manzanita, to be sure, but which one? This little cluster was about 3-4 cm across, observed in coastal scrub.
Thanks for the ID, but this was on a bush/tree that was at least head-high, and I believe A. hookeri is a low-lying shrub that doesn't occur in San Mateo county, at least according to CalFlora. I didn't really know much about IDing manzanita when I took this, so I failed to capture leaf details, or any sense of how long the pedicel was. These days I try to be more diligent.
yeah, i doubt you can ID it to species with just flowers (like you can with many species). If I had to guess I'd say A. glandulosa, since I see some hairs on stems/leaves in the background, but that's definitely a low confidence guess so I don't want to mark it as my ID (maybe we need an option to mark down 'guesses'?)
@jessdemoss, why did you add the "which foot" observation field to this observation? It doesn't seem relevant.
it's also been added to Texas and Israel projects as well as an animal tracking project. Something odd going on here.
