  • notes   I believe this is what is now considered Nemacladus glanduliferus. It keyed in the old Jepson Manual to N. g. var. glanduliferus (modulo my slight discomfort in discerning infl. 'weakly' vs. 'strongly' zigzag :-). But both the previous varieties have been promoted to full species status in a recent revision of Nemacladus by Nancy Morin. The previous N. g. var. g. is now simply N. g., while N. g. var. orientalis is now N. orientalis. A principal difference between the two taxa is that the corollas of N. glanduliferus are actinomorphic (= regular) while those of N. orientalis are zygomorphic (= irregular w/ 2 lobes 'down' and 3 lobes 'up'...but up & down can get confusing w/ Nemacladus, as due to inverted corollas!). I think the corolla lobes of N. orientalis are typically more deeply 'red-tipped' as well...and Nancy Morin mentioned (pers. comm.) that it is more commonly encountered than N. glanduliferus.
