  • location   North Coast, Arcata Community Forest, Janes Creek Trail (Humboldt County, California, US)
  • notes   Deciding on what to name this taxon was complex. It had no fruit so it was not keyable in tjm2. Descriptions and photos were the primary resources. As such, no collections of this taxon have been made in Humboldt County. Awned sepals with spreading hairs on them and on stems, degree of leaf divisions, yellow pollen. One description mentions lack of ridging on sepals, which appear to be ridged or veined.
