John Callender (CarpWithoutCars):  "Tilden’s monumental study (1951) of this shrub identified over 221 species of insects associated with it, as well as eight species of mites. The insects, in turn, hosted an additional 62 species of parasites for a total of 291 species on coyote brush…" from Russo’s Field Guide to Plant Galls of California and Other Western States:
