[Photos submitted as part of a botanical survey for Rocks Ranch/ Santa Cruz Land Trust]

The very low-lying stature of these plants (with their flowers on short pedicels seeming to arise from beneath ground level) gives rise to the specific epithet terrestris (= "of the ground").

Note that within the tubular, violet-limbed corolla there is an outer whorl of three pearlescent staminodes (= modified stamens, lacking anthers) which exceed in length the inner whorl of three true (anther-equipped) stamens. The staminodes are slightly incurved along their longitudinal edges, and have a small apical emargination with a smaller yet central tooth. The stamens have their pale-yellow anthers reflexed at the tip, and (similar to the staminodes) sport an apical notch with a small, central dentate lobe (easier to discern in the 2nd photo).

Perhaps the placement of the staminodes promotes an outcome where insect visitors seeking nectar at the bottom of the corolla tube will more likely rub their bodies against the anthers, and so more consistently pick up pollen? I'm presuming the flowers are protandrous (i.e. have the male anthers maturing before the female stigmas become receptive). When the male phase of flowering (wherein the anthers release their pollen) comes to an end, it would be interesting to see if the style then further elongates and positions of the staminodes and anthers slowly move away from the central axis of the flower (i.e. if herkogamy occurs)... so as to then make contact between a pollen-carrying insect visitor's body and the stigmas more likely during the later female phase of flowering?

The full story: I went outside to go for a walk, picked up one of my boots, and started to put it on. They’re almost too small, so I had to do some wiggling to get my foot in. I often don’t wear socks in my shoes, so yell at me if you want but I think it was a good thing in this case. My foot was most of the way in when it touched something furry. I froze, trying to figure out what it was. It didn’t move either. Then I yanked my foot back out and looked inside, and there was a little rodent in there! It's probably a baby rat. I pinched the top of the boot shut before it could get out and called to my mom that I needed my camera right now, and I probably shouldn’t come in the house because I was holding a boot with a rat in it. She brought my camera out and I took some adorable pictures of it before it ran back into the toe. Then I dumped it out and it ran away.

I found a female with full of eggs in her tummy( last photo) I followed her for a while. After she met a male, she started to come close to him then shook her tail, he shook his tail back, swam together for a while and shaking each other, mating. He was next to her and fertilized eggs with his semen(?) then egg transferred to his mouth.
She left after mating...

13 - Close up, top down view of specific gall used in dissection
14 - Lateral view of specific gall used in dissection
15 - Lateral view of specific gall used in dissection
16 - Measurement of gall 3-4mm
17 - Abaxial (underside of) leaf showing 2 gall marks
18 - Close up of gall mark on underside
19 - Bisected gall (used a razor blade)
20 - Close up of interior of gall; mites visible
21 - Close up of interior of gall; mites visible
22 - Additional gall showing exterior structure
23 - Additional gall has only a slight stem, making it appear (to the eye) on the leaf surface

Video Link: https://youtu.be/VByatNDqJ64

More details:

  • I used a razor blade and plastic tweezers for dissection
  • Some photos are with my Samsung S9 cell phone camera, others with my Olympus and a 60mm macro lens. (Next time I'll switch to a diff lens to get better pics.)
  • Microscopic views are at 40x. I tried to get 100x images of the mites, but I'll need to find a way to separate them from the gall for next time.
  • Microscopic images are taken with my cell phone held up to the microscope eye piece. Not the best solution, but it worked for a first try. I've requested a SEM for Christmas. ;)
  • Video is taken the same way as the microscopic still images. Note that the lens on lens caused distortion, and the camera tries to auto-focus as well. Things I'll try to find a better solution to for next time.

This is high up on one of the dunes in Archer on the northeast coast of Socotra.

This was the only one of its species here, and it has survived change in a way that’s quite remarkable. For one this place is sandblasted for months, during which this is not a place even for humans. Then there is the lack of water, and the hot sun.

Perhaps the most remarkable is that it has been completely buried for months, and still been able to thrive! Now it is in the open and is flowering, and hopefully it will be able to produce seeds that will germinate.

For plants to survive in a desert, they need to get to the water whenever it’s available, and thus grow very long roots. Here the wind has revealed what looks like long tentacles, and in a way they are as without them the plant would die.
