Another mystery manzanita from the old quarry at the Los Padres Dam.

It has a large, upright growth pattern; the leaves are erect and dull colored with rounded to wedge-shaped bases, the inflorescence is a panicle with sharp-pointed bracts. No fruit is currently present.

@morganstickrod has suggested that these oddballs may be related to the A. manzanita group and, while I'm not too familiar with A. manzanita, this certainly appears to match many of the A. manzanita characteristics that appear in the keys.

Description

In the middle of a large mixed stand of A. tomentosa and A. hookeri, this individual stands out - mainly due to its tiny leaves. It is upright, 2+ meters tall, and has no visible burl (I was also unable to find a burl by digging with my fingers, but there are several large stems suggesting a deeply buried burl is possible). The stems are as red and smooth as the surrounding hookeri, but the twigs are white and nonglandular puberulent to tomentose (although there are minute black spots on some twigs suggesting some glandularity). The leaves are only 1-2cm long, strongly bifacial, abaxially tomentose, and sparsely hairy above. They are similar in color to the surrounding tomentosa (much duller than the hookeri). The raceme-like (0-1 branches) nascent inflorescence is pendant and minutely nonglandular hairy (similar to the twigs) with leaf-like, lanceolate bracts. It shows no sign of preparing to bloom, putting it out of sync with both the tomentosa (which is already blooming) and the hookeri (which is about to start). I only found one berry that wasn't hollow and it appeared to have a fused nut – although it could have just gotten stuck together as it decayed.

So is this some kind of cross-clade tomentosa/hookeri hybrid? A really unusual A. crustacea crinita with a hidden burl? Or just one of the many, many obligate seeders I've never heard of?

The leaf comparison photo has the subject plant on the left followed by a hookeri leaf and a tomentosa leaf. The third photo shows it growing side by side with hookeri.

Description

This isn't actually a good A. pungens; it is a hybrid between A. glauca and A. pungens, discovered by Morgan Stickrod eight months earlier:

https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/72000194

Unfortunately, iNat doesn't have a way to identify this as a hybrid, so it has to be given one of the parent names.

This is a clear hybrid:

  • the color of the plant is dead intermediate between the two parents.
  • The leaf shape is intermediate between the parents.
  • The twig hairs are variable on this plant, with some being like mom, and some being like dad.
  • The nascent infl is variable, with some like A. glauca and some like A. pungens.

Both parent species are found a short distance up SR78. The closest A. pungens along the road is here:

https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/101895779

The closest A. glauca along the road is here:

https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/101744692

Many thanks to Morgan for discovering this plant and posting it at iNat!

I've been trying to get Mike Vasey and Tom Parker to check out this spot for years! Not sure if any of the nevadensis is "pure" nevadensis. All of it seems to be integrated with other genes. Fairly low elevation for nevadensis for this region. A lot of other interesting plants also present at this location (Calochortus coeruleous, Calochortus nudus/minimus and hybrids between this one and coeruleous, Erythronium purpurescens - very low elevation for this one). @morganstickrod @dgreenberger

Globular stem gall on Microseris sp....most likely M. douglasii...but based on my photos, I'm currently unable to verify species using the Jepson eFlora key. The nodding heads and phyllaries in this CalPhotos image are a good match, though there is also a record of M. bigelovii from the locale.

[As an aside, I found it amusing that the adaxial dark-red mid-ribs of the tepals in the Brodiaea terrestris...seen growing in the background in both photos...matched so well with the similar mid-ribs of the Microseris phyllaries. ;-].

Beyond James Bailey's iNat post under Antistrophus microseris, the only reference I could find for a stem gall on Microseris is in:

McCracken, Isabel; Egbert, Dorothy (1922). "California gall-making Cynipidae, with descriptions of new species". Stanford University Publications, University Series, Biological Sciences. 3 (1): 5–70.

...where the original description of "Aylax microseris" is given on pg. 47. The species is referred to as Antistrophus microseris on this Wikipedia page...a name change also recognized on iNat.

The gall is described as "an irregular stem swelling" of "diameter 10-20 mm" and "length 20-30 mm", and is illustrated in Plate 1, Fig. 10 (to view, scroll down 3 pages from here). The gall here doesn't seem particularly irregular to me, and Fig. 10 shows longitudinal veins I see only vaguely intimated in the photo...but overall the match seems the best current alternative out there. The locale here is only a few miles from the type locality of Aylax microseris.
