Description

Fields of introduced mustard were common in the bottomlands along the east side of the park. These photos were taken behind the Visitors Center.

I am just beginning to appreciate the diversity of introduced yellow-flowerd mustards in California and am having a great deal of trouble identifying this plant. I have it narrowed down to two similar species, the Black Mustard (Brassica nigra) and the Shortpod Mustard (Hirschfeldia incana), but any advice or insights would be greatly appreciated. @gbentall , @grnleaf are either of you familiar with this identification challenge?

Thank you!
