Phacelia vallis-mortae J.W. Voss
Habit: Annual 20--60 cm. Stem: ascending to erect, simple to branched, puberulent and sparsely stiff-reflexed-hairy. Leaf: 15--80 mm; blade > petiole, +- oblong, compound, leaflets toothed or +- lobed. Flower: calyx lobes 4--6 mm, 7--10 mm in fruit, +- curved, not enclosing fruit, linear to narrowly elliptic, long-hairy; corolla 8--15 mm, funnel- to bell-shaped, lavender to violet, scales fused to filament bases, oblong; stamens 6--12 mm, glabrous; style 5--12 mm, cleft 2/3, short-glandular-hairy proximal to lobes, disk proximal to ovary conspicuous. Fruit: 3--4 mm, ovoid, +- puberulent, sparsely short-stiff-hairy. Seed: generally 4, 2.5--3 mm, pitted. Chromosomes: n=11.
Ecology: Sandy to rocky soils, scrub; Elevation: 90--2700 m. Bioregional Distribution: w SnJV, SNE, e DMoj, n DSon; Distribution Outside California: to southwestern Utah, northwestern Arizona. Flowering Time: May--Jun Note: If recognized taxonomically, plants in western SnJV with dark-veined corollas assignable to Phacelia vallis-mortae var. heliophila (J.F. Macbr.) J.W. Voss; relationships to Phacelia cryptantha or Phacelia cicutaria need study.
