Cymopterus confusion

We've had a number of interesting cymopterus observations up our way, lately. But we're having trouble finding a trustworthy source for identifying these at the species level. It seems the most authoritative sources are in disagreement with one another.
Does anyone have a recommendation as to a really good treatment on distinguishing these?

To the small-minded, foolish man:

Unidentifiable observations may have the most value.

Speaking of Invasive Species…..

OK, so you've found an unusual plant. Let's say it might be a milkweed, one you've never seen before.
Do you pick a leaf to check out the latex?
Did you just damage that plant?And is this a rare species of milkweed?
Is your curiousity more important than the survival of that species, and all other interrelated species in its habitat?

If anything can drive me away from iNaturalist, it's going to be people arguing about taxonomy.
