Pentachaeta exilis ssp. aeolica, San Benito pentachaeta
The white ray flowers are quickly deciduous, so herbarium specimens retain none or only a few ray flowers. This has led to ssp. aeolica being described as having 0-3 ray flowers, when it clearly may have more than that. Photo by Dieter Wilken.
