Do you know any specific sites for E. platysperma?

Not offhand, though I imagine you could find it in the algodones dunes. It loves deep sand dunes. I remember seeing a specimen near Yuma, AZ. It is more common in Sonora. Calflora has some sites south of the Salton Sea. I'm a bit skeptical about the observations further north but will have to look into it.

It looks similar to E. carunculata ( but is a little smaller. The two are likely sister taxa.

platysperma has been high on my list of plants to find, chasing old records, etc, but so far without success.
