Scanned 20 May 2015.

Coll. No. 269, 22 April 2001, characters observed: Annual, to 20 cm.; Leaves, basal and cauline, basal, 70-80 mm., some leaf segments widen to tip, tip obtuse, not notched, petiole, small glands, not hairs; Peduncle, 60-70 mm., < basal leaves; Flower bud, glabrous, ±nodding; Receptacle, 3.2 mm. × 1.7 mm. wide, tapered at base, parallel sides distally (leads away from E. minutiflora in TJM2 key); Petals, 6 mm. × 5 mm. wide, near round, yellow; Seed, 1 mm., oblong, dark brown, net-ridged.

The thing to see in this photo is that the sides of the distal receptacle are parallel; not a typical E. minutiflora character.
