Large-flowered fiddleneck seeds

This close-up shows the seeds (called nutlets) of the large-flowered fiddleneck (Amsinckia grandiflora). The seeds are actually only 3-4 mm in length. The smooth shiny surface of these seeds distinguishes the large-flowered fiddleneck from more common fiddleneck species. The fiddleneck is found at Site 300, the 7,000 acre experimental test facility operated by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in rural San Joaquin County. Photo by Lisa Paterson/LLNL
