Voucher information
macromorphologyIt is found here as low as 4500 feet, but was past flowering with well formed fruit at the lower elevations, while at the place where the specimens were collected it was in full flower, some of the bushes covered with the bright yellow blossoms. The type of this excellent species was collected near Carson City, Nevada. It has never been well described, so the following description, drawn up in the field, should be useful: Shrub a meter or more in height, with numerous stout often downcurved branches, the old bark ashen, that of growing shoots straw-colored or sometimes with a tinge of brown, puberulent; leaf blades small, nearly orbicular in outline, the largest about 1 cm. across, frequently broader than long, more or less 3 to 5-lobed, the lobes cuneate, broad and rounded and usually again 2 or 3-lobed, either truncate or cordate at base: petioles 5 mm. or less in length, these as well as the blades shortly pubescent and glandular: infrastipular spines commonly 3, 1 cm. long, needle-like, pale: flowers single or in twos on short pedicels of 1 to 2 mm., subtended by broadly ovate or roundish puberulent ciliate bracts 1 mm. high; calyx shortly pubescent but not glandular, the tube 3 mm. long and as broad, greenish yellow; segments bright yellow, spreading and slightly downcurved, 3 mm. long, less than 2 mm. wide, obtuse: petals yellow, oblong or somewhat spatulate, a little over 2 mm. long, less than 1 mm. wide, the apex rounded or somewhat truncate; all of the petals with edges touching, forming a raised ring or collar above the spreading calyx lobes, the orifice a little narrower than the base: stamens equaling but not exceeding the petals. Filaments stout, 1 mm. long and as wide at base, about half as wide above, anthers 1 mm. long and as wide, pale: ovary with numerous stalked glands, also shortly pubescent.
