Aliciella monoensis J.M. Porter
NATIVE
Habit: Annual; densely glandular-puberulent, glandular-hairy below, odor skunk-like. Stem: 5--30 cm, glandular-puberulent; branches generally spreading from base. Leaf: basal in +- erect cluster, 1--7 cm, glandular-puberulent, 1-pinnate-lobed, midrib narrow, lobes widely obtuse to pointed, mucronate; cauline entire, linear. Flower: calyx 2--3.5 mm, lobe 0.5--1.2 mm; corolla 4--7 mm, glabrous abaxially, tube + throat 3--6.2 mm, white, stout, throat > tube, well-expanded, yellow-spotted, lobes ovate, white, lavender-streaked abaxially; stamens exserted, pollen white; mature stigma generally exserted. Fruit: 3--5 mm, 1.5--2 × calyx, ovoid; tip pointed. Seed: 21--36. Chromosomes: 2n=16.
Ecology: Sandy soils, sagebrush scrub, pinyon/juniper woodland; Elevation: 500--2500 m. Bioregional Distribution: SNE, DMoj; Distribution Outside California: to Oregon, Nevada. Flowering Time: Apr--Jul Note: Gilia subacaulis [Aliciella subacaulis], the name formerly applied to this taxon in California, applies instead to a narrow endemic of Wyoming. Sand grains often stuck to glands.
Synonyms: Aliciella subacaulis (Rydb.) J.M. Porter & L.A. Johnson, misappl.; Gilia subacaulis Rydb., misappl.
