[wildlife.ca.gov] Threatened species: Few-flowered navarretia (Navarretia leucocephala ssp. pauciflora) is a California threatened plant species, which means that killing or possessing the plant is prohibited by the California Endangered Species Act (CESA). Few-flowered navarretia is also listed as endangered under the federal Endangered Species Act(opens in new tab). Few-flowered navarretia is a small annual herb that forms in mats and produces small pale blue or white flower heads that typically appear from May to June. There are usually two to twenty flower heads, about half that of the closely related subspecies many-flowered navarretia (Navarretia leucocephala ssp. plieantha). Few-flowered navarretia is a vernal pool plant, and is found only in these unique wetlands. The species is included in the Recovery Plan for Vernal Pool Ecosystems of California and Southern Oregon (PDF)(opens in new tab) (Recovery Plan) completed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in 2005.
