  • date of photo  Feb 20, 2016
  • latitude 36.60590   longitude -117.15670     View on Google Maps.
  • location   Desert; Death Valley National Park; Stovepipe Wells; north edge of landing strip (Inyo County, California, US)
  • notes   An interesting path to name this taxon. Fairly easy to get to Chylismia (part guess, part no other genera quite fit.) claviformis as species okay but subspecies more problematic. Originally had guessed either claviformis or aurantiaca but each had issues. Decided on funerea because of 1) location, 2)petals white fading purple, 3) sepal tips in bud free and conspicuous, 4) plant generally strigose. The only thing not fitting is 'lateral leaflets generally 0'. This could indicate that, per the description in Jepson eflora 'Intergrades with Chylismia claviformis subsp. aurantiaca, Chylismia claviformis subsp. claviformis; occasionally hybridizes with Chylismia munzii, Chylismia brevipes subsp. brevipes.'
