Meadow Valley Sandwort

Eremogone stenomeres (Eastwood) S. Ikonnikov

Comments

provided by eFloras
Eremogone stenomeres is known only from a few sites in Clark and Lincoln counties. This species was recognized for its linear petals with notched apices. Rehydration of petals from representative specimens indicates that the lamina fold lengthwise upon drying, thus the linear appearance. When rehydrated, the petals were oblanceolate, with widths within the range of related taxa.
