Identification by Andrew Sanders, UC Riverside Herbarium, as S. umbelliferum (n.r. xantii) based on a revision of several species. UCR botanist Arlee Montalvo noted "The stems look pubescent-- but I can't see the type of hairs. The waviness of the leaf margin may be more like S. parishii. Allen and Roberts are suggesting that these two speices are likely part of S. umbellatum." Photo by James Bryant
Early Spring growth following only moderate Fall rain. Original identification by photographer as Common Cryptanthus (C. intermedia); then revised by botanists Andrew Sanders (UC Riverside Herbarium) and Arlee Montalvo (who noted "how soft hairy the leaves are"), though Sanders thought it possibly is P. collinus.
