Zornia cf. venosa
The genus has distinctive bracteate inflorescences. Identification of my plants is
uncertain; they key to Zornia sinaloensis in a 1962 key by Mohlenbrock in The
Southwestern Naturalist, but that species is not (at least, as of 1962) known outside of
Sinaloa. My current tentative ID is based on comparison to a specimen at NMC determined by
Plant habit at grasslands near La Junta, between Cuauhtémoc & Creel, Chihuahua,
Mexico, 6 Sep 2009. Photographed on a trip with the American Penstemon Society.
