Description

Observed and photographed by Fabian Gonzalez. This appears to be an un-described species. Hairs on petals do not match those of Viola atropurpurea, which very rarely has yellow flowers. The plant seems more similar in the shape of the rosettes and hairs on petals to Viola skottsbergiana, a plant with white petals and similar markings on the lower petals.

https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/182534758

Seems to match this observation found a short distance to the south on Nevado de Longaví.

https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/77911856

In 10th photo, Nevado de Longaví, can be seen in the distance.

Growing at an altitude of 2980 m.
The population consists of thousands of plants that are all consistently yellow or yellow-orange colored.

Other yellow flowered species in the Section Sempervivum include V. auricolor, which has smaller, more loosely arranged rosettes, and larger flowers compared to the size of the rosettes. It grows far to the south of this location.

Viola coronifera has yellow flowers that are arranged at a different angle on the rosettes.

Observación y fotos por Fabian Gonzalez.

Parece que es una especie desconocida. Los pelos de los pétalos son diferentes de los de Viola atropurpurea. Es mas parecido en la forma de las rosetas y en los pelos de los pétalos a Viola skottsbergiana, que tiene pétalos blancos con manchas parecidas.

Parece bastante parecido a esa observación del Nevado de Longaví, que está unos 30 kilometros al sur:

https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/77911856

Crece a una altura de 2980 msnm.

Otras violas de la sección Sempervivum con flores amarillas incluye Viola auricolor, que tiene rosetas mas pequeñas, con hojas no tan apretadas, y flores mas grandes en comparación al tamaño de las rosetas. Esa especie ocurre muy al sur.

Viola coronifera, que ocurre mas cerca al sur, tiene flores amarillas que salen en angulo diferente en las rosetas en comparación a esa especie.

Nerved Paintbrush (Castilleja nervata)

Date

August 1992

Description

This observation, made 31 years ago, was the only fairly recent record of this species in the U.S. It is mostly found in the pine-oak zone in the Sierra Madre Occidental and adjacent parts of Mexico. The previous last record in the U.S. was in 1907, with a collection obtained by the noted AZ botanist, J.W. Blumer. This location and Blumer's collection is also the type locality of the synonymous name, C. cruneta Standl. As far as I know, this species has not been recorded in the US since my 1992 observation. I have not revisited this location since that time. The precise location is obscured because the site is on private land, and I don't wish to bring harm to either the species or to folks who might be inclined to look for it, if you take my meaning. The precise location was transmitted to rare plant agencies and herbaria at both the state and federal level in 1992. The status of this population is presently unknown. But it is definitely worth searching similar areas in the western foothills of the Chiricahua Mountains, especially on public lands, for additional populations. This sighting is further documented in a Note in Madroño 40(3): 176-177, 1993.

Note the two color morphs visible in the final photo.

Description

Observed in April 2001, in a serpentine grassland near the Presidio's "Log Cabin" special events building. Emerged during a period after irrigation around the Log Cabin facility had been turned off for several years. Population crashed after irrigation was resumed. This species is now presumed extirpated from the City and County of San Francisco.
