    Hi All,
    some time ago you helped me identify a flower I met in Lassen Volcanic National park in California.
    I am heading south today, and I have several flowers I'd love to identify and I'm not sure about them.
    can you help me please?

    the pictures here:
    a01+a02 (which is a01's fruit) - on the side of the road to the ghost town Bodie, in California (maybe Brassicaceae?)
    a03 - a thistle that was in the leftovers of the town itself (Compositae, Asteraceae?)
    a04 - near Mono Lake's south tufa basin (maybe Lamiaceae?)
    a05 - also near Mono Lake's south tufa basin (maybe Apiaceae?)
    a06 - again, Mono Lake's south tufa basin (Compositae, Asteraceae?)

    thank you very much

    a01/a02 - Epilobium from Onagraceae, looks like E. brachycarpum. Check whether it is taprooted.
    a04 - Monardella sp from Lamiaceae, many species.

    3 is a Cirsium, C. scariosum likely.
    6 is Lessingia nemaclada.

    if anyone knows the Apiaceae (#5) - I'll be very happy if you tell me...

    It's hard to tell from the photo, but for #5, you might compare to Lomatium spp., such as L. dasycarpum.
