Aristolochiaceae Aristolochia californica

Pipevine Swallowtail (Battus philenor) in my Alameda, California garden.

In the summer of 1999, I noticed two butterfly larvae on the California Pipevine (Aristolochia californica) in my backyard. They each were black with yellow spots. I suspected that they could be larvae of the Pipevine Swallowtail, but they were gone before I could confirm my identification. Then on May 25, 2000, my wife found this butterfly on the Pipevine. It appears to have just hatched out. After several hours it flew away.

Several days later we watched as a Pipevine Butterfly (the same one?) layed seven eggs in two spots on our Pipevine.

Boraginaceae Phacelia distans

Coll. No. 415, Phacelia distans cf. amabilis

Scanned 15 January 2013.

The next closest thing to amabilis, under the hoof-beats theory, would be Phacelia crenulata. However, the calyx lobes are too narrow, and the fruit is too hairy (at least while young) to fit there.

Received advice from Andy Sanders that this is P. distans.

Brassicaceae Steptanthus inflatus

Squaw Cabbage (Streptanthus inflatus) along the Grass Valley Route.

A portion of the Grass Valley Route threads the boundary between the China Lake Naval Weapons Station and the Grass Valley Wilderness. This portion is known informally as the "Northwest Passage" as it is the only route through this area and avoids a lengthy detour. The Navy has built a stout barbed wire fence along the border, with a ditch and a berm just inside. These Squaw Cabbage (Streptanthus inflatus) have found the berm to be a preferred habitat, and are very grateful to the Navy.

Mound Cactus (Echinocereus triglochidiatus).

Sometimes also called Claret Cup Cactus, grows in the rocks in the canyons along Wild Horse Canyon Road. My impression is that the species is more common on the Precambrian schist and gneiss, but I have no data to support that conclusion. Occasionally the species can be found on alluvial soils.

"There is a remarkable stand of Utah juniper east of Mono Lake near the Nevada border. The stand has very little single leaf pinyon, and the Utah juniper trees are very large and have the appearance of very old trees. The stand is growing on wind-eroded volcanic tephra sand with little understory herbaceous vegetation, which may contribute to making the location a fire safe site (Barbour, et al., 2007)."

Coll. No. 1343, Woodsia oregana subsp. cathcartiana

Scanned 9 November 2016.

Of the three characters that distinguish subsp. cathcartiana from subsp. oregana, two, spore size and adaxial epidermal cell size, require measuring in units of µm, something outside the usual abilities of the field botanist. The third character, regarding the cells on pinnule margins being irregular in shape making the margins appear ragged, can be seen with a good microscope.

Detail of Coll. No. 675, Lupinus argenteus var. argenteus

Scanned 26 Oct 2011.

This was an attempt to visualize the stem hairs. The question is: are they appressed? The scan makes it look like the stem hairs are spreading, but under the microscope, about 2/3 of the hairs are appressed, and 1/3 spreading.

Characters observed while keying: Perennial > 1 dm, stem hairs appressed, leaves cauline, petioles 4-4.5mm, calyx spurred <= 1 mm, banner back hairy, keel upper margin ciliate distal half.

Flower of Coll. No. 1137, Lupinus argenteus var. argenteus

Scanned 14 October 2015.

Coll. No. 1137, 9 Jun 2015, characters observed: Perennial herb, to 50 cm., caulescent, generally appressed hairy, except as noted; Leaves, cauline, petiole 25 mm., appressed hairy, blade, palmately compound, leaflets, 7, 40 mm. × 6 mm. wide, lanceolate, glabrous adaxially, appressed hairy abaxially; Inflorescence, 15-20 cm., elongating as it matures; Pedicel, 3 mm., densely spreading hairs; Calyx, 5 mm., hairy, persistent; Flowers, spur, <1 mm., corolla, white with blue-lavender stripes, banner, 11 mm., recurved from a point 4 mm. below apex, back lightly hairy, wings, 12 mm., keel, shallow, glabrous except few small hairs below, pouched down mid-keel; Style, 9 mm., persistent; Fruit, 10 mm. × 3 mm. high, shaggy hairy.

Weber & Wittmann (2012) use “keel glabrous” as a key character. Harrington (1954) and Ackerfield (2015) neither use keel decoration as a key character nor do they describe the decoration of the keel. California floras, e.g., Munz (1965) and Baldwin (2012), use a ciliate keel, as a key character to identify L. argenteus. Welch, et al. (1993) note that the keel can be glabrous or variously ciliate.

Coll. No. 679, Lupinus argenteus var. meionanthus

Scanned 5 Nov 2011

Coll. No. 679, 5 Nov 2011, Characters observed while keying: Perennial, herb, >= 3 dm tall (obs: 4.5-5 dm); Leaves cauline, spread along stem; Leaflets 22-38 mm, upper surface appressed hairy, not wooly; Infloresence open; Pedicels slender, 4-5 mm; Calyx spur mere bulge; Bracts persistent; Flower white, 10-11 mm; Banner base lightly hairy, back glabrous; Keel upper margin ciliate claw to tip not uniform, cilia density increases claw to tip.

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.

Scanned 17 Jan 2012.

Coll.

Originally assumed to be L. duranii when collected. Could be determined as L. breweri on the basis of smaller stipules, petioles, pedicels and flowers than typically seen in L. duranii. However, given the west-facing sand slope on which this collection was made, I am assuming it is just a small L. duranii.

Lamiaceae Salvia reflexa

Reveal, Moulton & Schuyler (1999) on Salvia reflexa.

173. Salvia reflexa Hornem.

Salvia reflexa Hornem., Enum. Pl. Hort. Hafn., rev. ed.: 34. 1807.
Salvia trichostemmoides Pursh, Fl. Amer. Sept.: 19. Dec (sero) 1813. - LECTOTYPE: PH-LC 199 (Moulton 156b), designated here! DUPLICATE OF THE LECTOTYPE: PH-LC 198 (Moulton 156a).
Pursh provides a full description of his new species. Meehan (1898: 39) lists only PH-LC 198, apparently unaware of PH-LC 199 from Lambert. He refers the specimen to Salvia lanceolata Willd. (Enum. Pl.: 37. 1809), a later name for S. reflexa. The Lewis type was collected at the Big Bend of the Missouri River in Lyman Co., South Dakota, on 21 Sep 1804 (Moulton, 1987a: 96-99). Epling (in Repert. Spec. Nov. Regni Veg. 60: 103. 1939) did not differentiate among the syntypes when he indicated the type was at PH.

Linaceae Linum perenne

Coll. No. 1383, Linum perenne

Photographed 1 June 2016.

Definitely Linum, maybe L. perenne because the styles are consistently longer than the stamens, which, in Weber & Wittmann (2012), would put us in L. perenne rather than L. lewisii. The key in Ackerfield (2015) does not discriminate between the two taxa based upon characters that can be observed with this collection.

Loasaceae Mentzelia monoensis

Coll. No. 987, Mentzelia monoensis

Photographed 25 February 2015.

Coll. No. 987, 20 June 2012, characters observed while keying: Annual, to 40 cm., branched near base; Stem, white-tan, with few barbed hairs; Leaves, cauline, alternate, simple, lanceolate, 30–40 mm. × 11 mm. wide, pinnately lobed, barbed hairs abaxially, less dense adaxially; Floral bracts, 5 mm., not concealing fruit, entire, base white, margin green, barbed hairy; Perianth, 2 or more whorls, 5×n parts; Flowers, open; Petals, free, 4 mm. × 3 mm. wide, obovate, yellow distally, darker proximally; Stamens, many, inserted on hypanthium (not petals); Ovary inferior; Pistil 1; Style, 1, 2.5 mm.; Fruit, 9 mm. × 2 mm., cylindric; Seeds, > 1 row above mid-fruit, coat cells domed (not pointed).

In the TJM2 key to Mentzelia, this collection gets lost at 33-33' because the bracts are entire, but the white base is conspicuous, while the fruit is small. In the key supplied in Brokaw & Hufford (2011), this collection keys fairly easily into 8' M. monoensis.

Nyctaginaceae Mirabilis bigelovii

Mirabilis bigelovii in my Salvia dorrii plot.

Photograph taken October 15, 2005.

There is one Mirabilis multiflora that I have been following for a few years. This plant survived, as it is a perennial growing every year from the roots. I noticed, though, that all of the M. multiflora in this area were very much chewed upon. This is unusual. I’m thinking that perhaps the rabbits, or other small mammals, must be very hungry and are forced to eat this plant, even though it may not be very palatable to them.

Onagraceae Camissonia brevipes brevipes

Scan of buds in Camissonia brevipes ssp. brevipes

Scanned at 1200 dpi. Area shown is 16 mm by 12 mm.

The concept illustrated by this image is "sepal tips in bud free and subterminal." The only other desert species of Camissonia that has sepal tips in bud free and subterminal is C. claviformis ssp. claviformis and ssp. peirsonii. However that species and subspecies tend to open at dusk, rather than mid-day.
