Cuscuta subinclusa Durand & Hilg.
Inflorescence: +- head-like, flowers 5--20(45); pedicels 0--1 mm. Flower: 5--7(9) mm, generally membranous, parts in 5s; calyx generally 1/2 corolla tube, bell-shaped, divided 3/5--2/3, finely veined, shiny, lobes widely ovate to lanceolate, bases overlapped, margins entire, tip acute (abruptly pointed); corolla tube 2.5--3.5(4.5) mm, cylindric, generally horizontally ridged below lobes, scales +- 1/2 corolla tube, oblong to spoon-shaped, rounded, irregularly short-fringed, lobes spreading to reflexed, 1/4--1/3 tube, ovate-triangular, papillate, margins entire, tip acute to +- acuminate, straight; filaments 0--0.1 mm, anthers included to +- exserted, 0.8--2 mm, linear; styles 1--1.5 mm. Fruit: 1.5--3 mm, 1.2--2.5 mm wide, +- ovoid, thickened, raised around opening between styles, not translucent, capped by corolla. Seed: 1, 1.3--1.7 mm, 1.2--1.5 mm wide, +- spheric to widely ovoid.
Ecology: Generally on herbs, shrubs, in forests near streams, river canyon bottoms, salt marshes; Elevation: < 2000 m. Bioregional Distribution: NCoR, SN, GV, SnFrB, SCoR, SCo, SnJt, GB; Distribution Outside California: Oregon, Baja California. Flowering Time: Mar--Oct(Dec?)
Unabridged Note: Cuscuta subinclusa Durand & Hilg. (Nov 1854) was published +- 1 month earlier than Cuscuta ceanothi Behr (Dec 1854), so that it would have priority if the two names were considered to represent a single taxon; however, the protologue of Cuscuta ceanothi departs from that of Cuscuta subinclusa in some respects and offers no information regarding a type, so that neotypification will be required to firmly establish the application of Cuscuta ceanothi, which in fact might represent a distinct taxon.
