Brodiaea coronaria (Salisb.) Engl.
Inflorescence: scape 5--25 cm; pedicel <= 7 cm. Flower: perianth 23--37.5 mm, tube 8.5--13.5 mm, cylindric, lobes 14--25 mm, violet, ascending, tips recurved, outer 3.5--5.5 mm wide, inner 5--8 mm wide; staminodes leaning toward but not appressed to stamens, 7.5--12 mm, generally white, flat or incurved below tip, tips obtuse; filaments 3--6 mm, anthers 4.5--7 mm; ovary 6--10 mm, style 6.5--11 mm. Chromosomes: n=12,24,42.
Ecology: Vernal pools, grassland; Elevation: 30--760 m. Bioregional Distribution: CaRF, n SNF, ScV; Distribution Outside California: to British Columbia. Flowering Time: Apr--Jun
Synonyms: Brodiaea coronaria subsp. coronaria
Unabridged Note: Brodiaea coronaria subsp. coronaria has been misapplied to plants with tightly inrolled staminodes that are appressed to the stamens. At least 2 such groups are morphologically, ecologically distinguishable, one in montane meadows in KR, CaR, MP, southern Oregon, the other in grassland in ScV, northern SnJV. In addition, California plants morphologically similar to Brodiaea coronaria from the Pacific Northwest differ in chromosome number and may represent separate lineages of hybrid origin. Study needed.
