UNIDENTIFIED PLANT

Post by blackturtle.us » Thu Apr 09, 2009 11:36 am

Does anyone recognize this plant? I've tried to identify it, but I'm stumped. INFO: This small plant was found growing under the north side of small rocks at about 2400 feet in elevation about 200 yards south of the Inyo County line in Searles Valley.
