|Linanthus killipii, the magenta colored variety.|
|Linanthus maculatus subsp. "emaculatus"|
At the beginning of every field season I look forward to my first encounters with species in the Genus Linanthus in the wild as I never know if it will be a species I have not seen before, an old friend, or potentially one that could be new to science. They are a unique and special group, and one most enjoyed by laying out flat on your belly while exploring their tiny little world.
