Vernacular names

Heliomeris is a genus of flowering plants in the sunflower family[2][3] known generally as false goldeneyes.[4]

They are native to the western United States and northern Mexico. One species, H. obscura, is separated from the others, endemic to a remote area on the border between the Mexican states of Puebla and Oaxaca[5]

These are annual and perennial herbs producing sunflower-like radiate flower heads. They are distinguished from related genera by the achenes, which are glabrous and lack a pappus, and by the involucre, which consists of only 2 series of bracts.[4]

Heliomeris hispida - rough false goldeneye, hairy goldeneye - Sonora, Arizona, New Mexico, California, Utah
Heliomeris longifolia - longleaf false goldeneye - Sonora, Chihuahua, Durango, Jalisco, San Luis Potosí, Michoacán, Chiapas, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Colorado, Utah, Nevada
