Notes to/from Editor:

P. multiloba is easily distinguished from Notch-leaf Ragwort [P. fendleri] because the latter has cobweb-woolly hair on leaves and singular (not bunched) stems, giving them a gray-green appearance. Distinguish P. multiloba from Cut-leaf Groundsel [Senecio eremophilus], which also has lobed leaves, but the latter has black-tipped phyllaries at the base of the flower petals, wheras P. multiloba phyllaries are yellow-green, undotted and smooth.
