Close-ups of the maturing seed heads of Henderson's angelica as seen on brushy, beach grass slopes immediately behind the beach between Netarts and Oceanside, Oregon.........August 18, 2016. Note the broad lateral wings of the fruit which are much broader than the dorsal or central wings or ribs. Late in the season, this helps distinguish this species from seacoast angelica (Angelica lucida) which only has the short wings, both central and lateral.
