Observation 117252: Hemitomes congestum
When: 2012-06-28
No herbarium specimen

Notes: I have tried to find out what this is.
It grows in clusters on either side of a trail. It is 50 feet from a fresh water lake. Grows on the dunes, under conifer trees.
The entire area was filled with a sour beer smell, that this ? put off.
The colony is still there, and I expect it wil re bloom in the spring/summer.

I hike a lot, and have a wonderful super macro function on my camera.
I am not sure this is not specifically hemitomes congestum. As I have shots of hemitomes congestum which I recognized once I read your thoughts, and looked at the pics.
Now, These two sets of shots are 2 months apart… And I am 80% sure they are from two different places. But since that was 6 months ago… And I have vistited the area some 50 times… I will have to go back in the spring and see.
