Both the Common sandaster (Corethrogyne filaginifolia) and the rare Del Mar Mesa sandaster (Corethrogyne filaginifolia var. linifolia) are reported at this location according to calflora.org – it may simply be a case of lacking consensus whether the plant is a distinct local subspecies, so there is a good chance that this is the linifolia variety, aka the Del Mar Mesa sandaster.
