Habit: Annual < 1.5 m, branched from base, papillate to short-stiff-hairy (+- glabrous). Stem: spreading to ascending, longitudinally ribbed, occasionally red-striped. Leaf: opposite to alternate below, alternate above, 8--52 mm, gray-green to yellow-green, blade deciduous; in age rigid, thick, broad, leathery, tip sharp-pointed or -spined. Inflorescence: bract not surrounding fruit, +- cylindric, spiny, bract wing 0.3--0.6 mm, opaque-white to +- translucent. Flower: sepals 2.5--3 mm, soft to partially spiny in fruit; anthers 0.7--0.9 mm. Fruit: deciduous in age; 5.4--11.1 mm diam including wings, developed wings 5, +- translucent, veins few, generally pale, margin smooth to uneven, base often with yellow or pink spot or both, smallest 2 wings narrowly oblanceolate to linear or 1 (both) rudimentary.
Ecology: Common. Disturbed, sandy, places; Elevation: 120--2200 m. Bioregional Distribution: s SnJV, n WTR, SNE, DMoj; Distribution Outside California: to Utah, Mexico, apparently native to Eurasia. Flowering Time: Jul--Oct Note: Apparently hybridizes with Salsola tragus, Salsola paulsenii.
