| ||"There is a Madera Canyon in southern Arizona, and I suspect this image is from there, not a canyon of the same name in California. I assert this because I just viewed a days-old image by a southern Arizona resident of the same, uncertain species taken in that region, and there is little overlap in floras between that area and the Madera County, California region (most of that overlap surely of weedy species, quite unlike this)."|

|Action: changed name from "Polygala sp." to "Carlowrightia arizonica
| ||"Though this identification stumped me, since I could not think which family this plant would be if it were not in the Polygalaceae or Fabaceae, Max Licher and Chris Trask both identified it as this species, both referring to images in fireflyforest.com and the seinet database. Now that I know it's in the Acanthaceae, I concur. (There are already good images of it here on CalPhotos as well.)|
As per my previous comment, this species is not known to occur in the California Floristic Province, so the Madera County annotation of the image is undoubtedly in error."
