When I originally posted this observation as A. fasciculatum, which is what this keys out as in the Flora of the PNW 2nd edition, I was skeptical of the IDs I received from others for A. franciscanum. I dug a little deeper and found a recent journal article, with an updated Aphyllon key, that describes the later species. That journal article is here: https://bioone.org/journals/systematic-botany/volume-46/issue-2/036364421X16231782047479/Morphometrics-and-Redescription-of-Aphyllon-fasciculatum-and-Aphyllon-franciscanum-Two/10.1600/036364421X16231782047479.full
