Wooly Actinella, or Stemless Goldflower (Hymenoxys acaulis)

We saw this high (12500 ft) on Hoosier Ridge on July 6, 2008. I had never seen it before, but found it as Wooly Actinella in one book. It goes by other names, such as Goldenflower. I now learn that it is occasionally seen in the dry areas near Hoosier and Mosquito Passes. Latin name: tetraneuris brevifolia or hymenoxys acaulis.
