A common weedy nyctage in lawns around Las Cruces.

Flowers along Solano Ave. in Las Cruces, 9/26/05.

Cauline leaves behind my apartment in Las Cruces, 9/13/05.

Immature "fruits" at Dr. Bailey's house on the southwest edge of Las Cruces, 2 Sep 2009. Note the sectioned "fruit"; the thickened wall is the lower portion of the tepals, while the ovary itself is a small blob at the base.
