Coordinator notes: this is great, Joe, thanks for submitting. I saw Rita there during a prior count, maybe 2-3 years ago in an arroyo south of the VC. I noted at the time that the buckwheat was effusum, but perhaps that is incorrect. If you can get confirmation of the plant, I would like to know its identity. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. thanks!
