K. Cedrosensis.
      Near the last [K. ramosissima, Gray, partly] but stouter and only sparingly branching, the branches decumbent or ascending; leaves larger and less setose: spikes leafy-bracted, short and somewhat glomerate at the ends of short branchlets: calyx villous-hispid but not setose: nutlet solitary, smooth and shining, mottled with darker brown, ovate-acuminate, the ventral face very flat or even a little concave by an introflexion of the sharp lateral angles, the groove open near the base, and with a — distinct but short bifurcation. K. ramosissima, Gray, 1. c. in part.
      Cedros Island, April, 1885. Dr. Gray's cited specimens from the same locality are probably identical, although none are to be found in our collection from Dr. Veatch. The nutlets are very unlike those of the last, and the habit of the species is quite characteristic.
Note: Comments in square brackets []. Note description of nutlets as smooth and shining.
