Seen along Island View trail (ridgeline trail) amid the chamise-scrub. Most of the plants appeared to be parasitizing chamise, though a few were underneath manzanitas. Seen blooming in April (though probably starts in late Feb).

Formerly this genus was placed in the Scrophulariaceae (figwort) family.
