Annual, perennial herb, shrub, vine. Leaf: simple or compound, cauline (or most basal), alternate or opposite; stipules 0. Inflorescence: cymes, heads, clusters, or flower 1; bracts in involucres or not. Flower: sepals generally 5, fused at base, translucent membrane generally connecting lobes, torn by fruit; corolla generally 5-lobed, radial or bilateral, salverform to bell-shaped, throat often well defined; stamens generally 5, epipetalous, attached at >= 1 level, filaments of >= 1 length, pollen white, yellow, blue, or red; ovary superior, chambers generally 3, style 1, stigmas generally 3. Fruit: capsule. Seed: 1–many, when wetted swelling or not, gelatinous or not.
26 genera, 314 species: America, northern Europe, northern Asia; some cultivated (Cantua, Cobaea (cup-and-saucer vine), Collomia, Gilia, Ipomopsis, Linanthus, Phlox). [Porter & Johnson 2000 Aliso 19:55–91] Leptodactylon moved to Linanthus. —Scientific Editors: Robert Patterson, Thomas J. Rosatti.
Key to Polemoniaceae
Stem: erect, ascending or decumbent, glabrous, hairy, or glandular. Leaf: simple, generally alternate, tips acute, acuminate, or mucronate; basal generally in rosette, entire, toothed, or 1–2-pinnate-lobed; cauline generally reduced. Inflorescence: flowers 1–3 in bract axils. Flower: calyx membranous between lobes, lobes < tube, membranes glandular, splitting or expanding in fruit; corolla > calyx, lobes generally < tube, generally ovate, acute, acuminate. Fruit: spheric to ovoid; chambers 3; valves separating from top. Seed: 3–many, yellow to brown, not gelatinous when wet.Key to Aliciella
± 25 species: western North America. (Alice Eastwood, western American botanist, 1859–1953) [Porter 1998 Aliso 17:23–46]
Unabridged etymology: (Alice Eastwood, curator in herbarium, California Academy of Sciences, 1859–1953)
Annual; densely glandular-puberulent, glandular-hairy below, odor skunk-like. Stem: 5–30 cm, glandular-puberulent; branches generally spreading from base. Leaf: basal in ± erect cluster, 1–7 cm, glandular-puberulent, 1-pinnate-lobed, midrib narrow, lobes widely obtuse to pointed, mucronate; cauline entire, linear. Flower: calyx 2–3.5 mm, lobe 0.5–1.2 mm; corolla 4–7 mm, glabrous abaxially, tube + throat 3–6.2 mm, white, stout, throat > tube, well-expanded, yellow-spotted, lobes ovate, white, lavender-streaked abaxially; stamens exserted, pollen white; mature stigma generally exserted. Fruit: 3–5 mm, 1.5–2 × calyx, ovoid; tip pointed. Seed: 21–36.
2n=16. Sandy soils, sagebrush scrub, pinyon/juniper woodland; 500–2500 m. East of Sierra Nevada, Mojave Desert; to Oregon, Nevada. [Aliciella subacaulis (Rydb.) J.M. Porter & L.A. Johnson, misappl.; Gilia subacaulis Rydb., misappl.] Gilia subacaulis [Aliciella subacaulis], the name formerly applied to this taxon in California, applies instead to a narrow endemic of Wyoming. Sand grains often stuck to glands. Apr–Jul [Online Interchange]
