Lomatium anomalum M.E. Jones ex Coult. & Rose Lomatium triternatum (Pursh) Coult. & Rose ssp. triternatum var. anomalum (M.E. Jones) Mathias
Antiviral and antibacterial 
Seed sample from: 2011
Average Measurement: 9.5 x 3.3 x 1
Measurement Range: L: 7.25 - 12.5, W: 3 - 4, D: 0.5 - 1.5
Shape: Seed a schizocarp, winged, laterally compressed, and ribbed.
Color: On one seed face, there are three white ribs that run across a dark reddish brown surface. On the opposite seed face there is one rib that bisects the dark brown.
Surface: Seeds are matte.
Basic Explanations and Assumptions:
The dimensions for the seeds are length x width x depth. The location of the hilum is used as the base of the seed, and the length is measured from hilum to the opposite apex. Where a style is present, the length is measured from the hilum to the bottom of the style. Width is measured at a right angle to the length at the widest part. Depth is measured at a right angle to the intersection of height and width lines.
Measurements included are the mean average for each measurement of ten separate seeds.
All measurements in millimeters unless otherwise noted.
