Key to Collomia
Stem: hairy or glandular.
Leaf: alternate, simple, entire to generally pinnate-lobed, linear to ovate [fan-shaped]; basal short-petioled; cauline sessile.
Inflorescence: heads or clusters, terminal, or flowers 1–3 in axils.
Flower: calyx lobes connected by narrow membrane forming a pitcher-like projection at sinus, enlarging, not rupturing in fruit; corolla salverform to funnel-shaped.
Fruit: ovate to elliptic, explosively dehiscent, valves reflexed on dehiscence.
Seed: 1(2–3) per chamber, oblong, generally gelatinous when wet, brown.
15 species: North America, s South America. (Greek: glue, from wet seed surface) Annual species self-pollinated; perennial herb species generally cross-pollinated.
