Salariato et al. (2014)
Salariato, D.L. , Zuloaga , F.O. and Al-Shehbaz, I.A. 2014. A revision of the genus Menonvillea (Cremolobeae, Brassicaceae). Phytotaxa 162(4):
Distribution and habitat
Widely distributed from regions Coquimbo to Los Ríos with an altitudinal range sea level and 800 to as high as 2300 metres.
- Salariato et al. (2014)
Annual with stems 15−36 cm tall. Flowers from September to November.
Similar to M. linearis but differs by being annual (vs. perennial) with crenate, undulate (vs. entire) fruit wings and fruits valves usually densely covered with clavate papillae between the wings and on the tuberculate callus (vs. glabrous or only sparsely papillate between the wings and glabrous callus). It is closely related morphologically to M. marticorenae but see discussion under this species (Salariato, 2014).
