Jepson Field Book volume 30 page 10
Calico Wash 2500 ft. No. 5810. Aster abatus Blake Desert aster.  Mostly 1 to 1 1/2 ft. high.  Rocky slopes.  Blooming abundantly this season and making a fine show.  Rays 35, 40, 44, pale or whitish lavender. No. 5811. Lycium cooperi Gray. I have never seen any plants of this species bearing such large leaves as this year.  Due to the heavy rains of this season.  No. 5812. Amsinckia tessellata Gray. Det. McBride Sepals 3, two broader than the third, slightly notched at apex, the third not notched Branching freely from base.  Sandy mesa. No. 5813. Zygadenus brevibracteatus Hall.  Perianth greenish-white, its  :::::::::  28 Apr. 1914 segments distinct, spreading nearly rotately. Inner segs broadly oblong-ovate, slightly longer than the outer broad ones which are rhomboidal-ovate, all obscurely clawed.  Stamens 6, the tips rotately spreading.  Styles 3, distinct.  Ovary one.  Per. [perianth] segments with a narrow green glandular ridge transverse the summit of claw and just above it (bordering it) a green band, which thus gives the effect of an "eye" to the center of the flower, or perhaps a "halo". It were better to regard the transverse green band at base of perianth limb as gland, the gland being definitely bounded
