Actinotus helianthi is correct but does not seem to be on the plant list.

Yes surprising that it's not on the list! Presume you or an Administrator can add it?

I've found 3 other sightings of A. helianthi recorded on SHNM. However, it doesn't currently show in the Field Guide. So how were the other records made? What has to be done confirm my sighting?

Hi AndyRoo,
If you select "Daisies" for category 2 you'll find flannel flowers on that list.

Thanks Alicia. I wouldn't have been picked it as being grouped in with Daisies since it's not in the Asteraceae family, but there you go!

Hi Andy, I agree daisies is an odd place to put it given it isn’t in that family. I can only assume they did it because of it’s daisy-like appearance so perhaps they think that’s where most people will look for it but given that A. forsythii and A. minor are in the more appropriate category of Other Wildflowers & Herbs it might be worth a review.
