Coll. No. 774, Gilia brecciarum var. brecciarum

Scanned 23 Jan 2012.

Coll. No. 774, 23 Jan 2012, characters observed while keying: Annual 10-20 cm; Stem scapose (as opposed to leafy); Leaves basal 25 mm x 7 mm wide, deeply pinnately lobed, lobes pointed but not bristly, petiole winged, cobwebby hairs, not glandular, cauline reduced above, 6 mm, alternate, expanded at base, with glandular trichomes and few hairs; Infloresence open; Flowers in heads of 2-3; Calyx lobes equal, membranous between the segments; Corolla long funnelform not quite salverform, 10 mm, 2 x calyx, throat yellow, wider than tube, exserted from calyx, lobes < tube, pink at center to purple at edges; Seeds > 1 / chamber, gelatinous when wet.

Difficult to key, various keys will easily go to Aliciella leptomeria and Allophyllum giliodes, but repeated careful working led to Gilia brecciarum. Makes me think that all the collections of these three taxa in the Mono Basin should be reviewed.

Ipomopsis aggregata attenuata

Coll. No. 1953, Ipomopsis aggregata ssp. attenuata

Photographed 26 December 2018.

Coll. No. 1953, 20 June 2018, characters observed: Calyx, tube 2.5-3.0 mm. + lobes 3.5-4.0 mm.; Corolla, filiform, tube 20 mm. × 1 mm. wide flaring gradually to 3 mm. + lobes 7.5-8.0 mm.; Anthers, close to orfice.

Two subspecies of Ipomopsis aggregata (Pursh) V.E. Grant have been collected within ½ km. radius of this collection. J. E. Tear, Jr. #258, 1993-06-16, CS81546, was determined I. a. subsp. weberi V.E. Grant & Wilkin by Ackerfield. Ackerfield (2015) now treats subsp. weberi as a synonym of I. a. subsp. attenuata (A. Gray) V.E. Grant & A.D. Grant. B. E. Nelson #49939, 2000-6-27, RM760254, was determined I. a. subsp. aggregata.

This specimen will key ambiguously to either subsp. attenuata or subsp. aggregata in Ackerfield (2015) depending upon how much weight one places on the shape of the corolla tube vs. the position of the anthers. However, this specimen keys unambiguously to subsp. attenuata in Grant & Wilkin (1986) based upon the shape and dimensions of the corolla tube and the position of the anthers.
