Monardella villosa Benth. subsp. villosa
Habit: Erect, < 50 cm; hairs simple or inconspicuously branched, +- dense, wavy, soft. Leaf: 10--22 mm, abaxially sparsely hairy to woolly, base tapered to obtuse. Inflorescence: flower cluster 10--30 mm wide; outer bracts 8--20 mm. Flower: corolla pink to purple.
Ecology: Rocky slopes, ephemeral drainages, oak woodland, chaparral, montane forest; Elevation: < 1300 m. Bioregional Distribution: NW, n CW. Flowering Time: May--Aug

Unabridged Note: If recognized taxonomically: less hairy, more glandular plants with lanceolate to ovate leaves in southern Diablo Range (eastern Monterey, San Benito cos.) assignable to Monardella antonina Hardham, also in southern Fresno and southwestern Kings cos. (Cholame and Kettleman Hills area); large plants with leaves > 22 mm, heads <= 40 mm wide assignable to Monardella villosa subsp. globosa (likely a shade-form); hairier plants of KR (e Humboldt Co., northwestern Siskiyou Co.) with lanceolate to ovate innermost bracts assignable to Monardella siskiyouensis Hardham.
