  • date of photo  Apr 16, 2015
  • location   Off highway CA-198, about 6 miles east of junction with CA-25 (Monterey County, California, US)
  • family Fabaceae
  • notes   Growing on ultramafic substrate (serpentinite here).

    Keys to Trifolium fucatum using the Jepson eFlora, but long-time Trifolium worker Randy Morgan treats this as T. ultramaficum...a member of the 'fucatoid complex', and a segregate from T. fucatum as circumscribed in the current Jepson treatment. See comments under this other post of the same taxon.

    Since the name T. ultramaficum has not yet been formally published I'm posting this under the closest currently validly recognized name, T. fucatum. Many ''automatic links'' on the CalPhotos ''details page'' (e.g. to the Jepson eFlora, CalFlora, etc.) would not function if this were posted under the name T. ultramaficum.
