I don’t know what to say

The odd part is: the specimens around it are “normal”. And Devil’s Lake area is choke-full of this species growing all over quartzite bluffs, but this is first time I see this kind of aberration. Initially I thought it was some other species, but I can’t think of anything else looking like this.

Woah! Check out the lobed margins!

I’ve never seen this species do that. Usually it form contiguous rosettes with maybe a few millimeters of lobes at the margins “placodioid”. But wow, yours has lobes that must be centimeters long. I wonder what conditions favor that form???
