Kallstroemia parviflora

This species is probably indistinct from K. californica. In specimens I have seen, the characters used to distinguish them are distributed more or less continuously distributed and not perfectly correlated. Though I believe the two to be conspecific, I list them separately because they are distinguished in most floras. K. parviflora is a summer annual of mountain foothills in the southern part of the state. It can be abundant in wet years.
