[Wikipedia] General Information, Etymology: Anelsonia is a monotypic genus in the family Brassicaceae containing the single species Anelsonia eurycarpa, which is known by the common name daggerpod. It is similar to Phoenicaulis cheiranthoides, but at present they are treated in separate genera. Anelsonia was named for the botanist Aven Nelson. (contributed by Mary Ann Machi)
