Coll. No. 122, Chaenactis glabriuscula

Comments: 7 Nov 2013, Coll. No. 122, 29 April 1997, characters observed while keying: Annual, tap-rooted, to 15 cm.; Stems, leaves, and phyllaries all wooly; Leaves, alternate, not decurrent, 1°(2°) pinnate lobed; Inflorescence, none of the flowers with strap-shaped corollas, flowers of 1 kind, heads discoid, peduncled, cylindric to obconic; Phyllaries, in 2 series, ±equal (outer ≤ inner), ≤7 mm., green, margins not scarious; Receptacle, epaleate; Pappus, of well-developed flat scales, #4, ≤3 mm.; Corollas, yellow, open during day.

This keyed out fairly easily to Chaenactis glabriuscula var. glabriuscula by way of TJM2 Asteraceae Group 7. However, the location of this collection is way out of range for that taxon. There is one other collection of this taxon from the eastern Mojave (H. S. Reed, s.n., May 5, 1935, Wheaton Springs, UC914160) for which the determination or location has been questioned. If the corolla color is described as “... rarely pale yellow ...” then the Chaenactis key takes one to a determination of “Chaenactis hybrid.” However, the yellow color of the corolla looks strong to me, which pretty much forces one into Chaenactis glabriuscula.

Coll.

Keys to Lupinus holmgrenanus in TJM1, L. gracilentus in TJM2, L. argenteus var. meionanthus in TJDM, and L. pratensis var. eriostachyus in Taylor (2010). The larger flower size of 10-11 mm is usually what gets one off track while keying. Also, the persistence of the bracts can be a problem.

In TJM1 and Taylor (2010) the few number of flowers per cluster would lead one to J. covilleii, which has been collected once in Slate Creek Valley (J. Clausen, 1839, Sep 14 1940, UC1154006). In TJM2, size of perianth and fruit would separate them. TJDM does not include J. covilleii.

Comments: 25 Oct 2012, Coll. No. 724, 1 Sep 2010, Characters observed while keying this collection: Perennial from fibrous roots and rhizomes, not thistle-like; generally > 4 dm tall (observed 3.5-4.5 dm); Stem pubesence uniform and sparse; Leaves basal withered at flowering, altho' formerly larger than cauline leaves, without spinulose tip; Peduncle not glandular; Involucre not glandular; Receptacle naked; Phyllaries in multiple series, could be >3; Outer phyllaries not chartaceous (paper-like) but could have scarious margins to half their length, elongate green area at tip, tip acuminate; Flowers not all ligulate; Ray flowers conspicuous, color violet or purple; Disk flowers style branches not tipped with tufted yellow hairs; Achenes with pappus of hairs.

Originally guessed to be Erigeron philadelphicus, but in Taylor's (2010) key, phyllaries in multiple series leds one away from Erigeron. Then I got lost in Symphyotrichum over the question of what basal leaves "present at flowering" means relative to "withered." This led me into S. lanceolatum. With the help of John Strother, I came to see that even though the basal leaves were withered, they were clearly formerly larger than the cauline leaves. This put me on a different path leading, eventually, to S. spathulatum.
