Description

Within a few feet of Allotropa virgata, which is obligately associated with Tricholoma murillianum. Pityopus associates with Tricholoma species. Flowers seem too dense and flat for Pluericospora, which along with Hemitomes, is the only other thing it could be. Plus Pluericospora develops black coloration on leaf tips and on the fruits as well when it starts to dry out. Not observing that here.

Description

gauge plant, Senecio integerrimus var. exaltatus, California, White Mountains, Cottonwood Basin, Fishlake Valley drainage, elevation 3051 m (10010 ft).

This species is widespread in mesic to wet sites throughout the mountains and high plains of the western United States and southwestern Canada, up to 3600 meters (12000 feet) elevation. Here in the White Mountains it is near the southwest edge of its range.

Livestock operators sometimes used the onset of flowering in this species to "gauge" when the range was ready for grazing. Ironically, gauge plant itself is toxic to livestock.

Description

The common and widespread Salix arctica is conspicuous because of its long upright catkins and gray-green leaves with attenuate tips. Calamagrostis muiriana is the grass with purplish open panicles.

Arctic willow will is a subalpine to alpine mat-forming subshrub. It is perhaps the most common of the mat-forming willows and has small leaves that are usually just over 10 mm wide and about 10 mm long. The leaf tip is acuminate and the undersurface is light-green compared to the green upper surface. The styles are 1-2 mm long.

Chilean chess, Bromus berteroanus, White Mountains, elevation 1345 m (4405 ft). Native to South America, and debated whether native or introduced in North America, mostly in summer-dry climate zones on both continents. Populations in North America often seem well-integrated into the native vegetation and not invasive.

Galls on leaves of Wyethia mollis. Searching for this on the internet, I found this is probably from the nematode Anguina balsamophila. It can also infect Balsamorrhiza sagittata. Photos here show both leaf surfaces, galls cut open with nematodes visible (under dissecting scope), and nematodes (approx. 1.5 mm long) on millimeter ruler.
Observation made on northwest slopes of Jeff Davis Peak, east of Blue Lakes Road, near Thornburg Canyon Trail, Mokelumne Wilderness, Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest, Alpine County, CA, elev. ~8600 ft.
