Barstow 2100 ft.
with 2-lobed stigma. Ovary with 2 central or axile placentae which lie closely face to face by their inner sides but quite distict, not even connivent I think. Flower 8 lines long, glabrous except that there is a line of spaced bristles down the lower side of the corolla in the saccate portion of the throat.
Its characters, therefore, lie between Mimulus and Mohavea.
