Jump to: navigation, search

Stylocline intertexta is known from the Mojave and northwestern Sonoran deserts. It combines character states of S. micropoides and S. psilocarphoides, is often sympatric with both, and appears to be stable, uniform, and reproducing independently. Stylocline intertexta shares most character states with S. micropoides. Presence of some subulate to lanceolate capitular leaves in S. micropoides helps distinguish the species in the field.
