The results of this study show that section Gilmania (genus Gilia) consists of only two species G. latifolia and G. ripleyi, which are well separated from the rest of the members of genus Gilia by their simple, aristately toothed, obovate to orbicular leaf blades, many, small, brilliant rose, salverform corollas, basally inserted, stout-filamented stamens, and 30 to 100 small, reddish-brown, oval seeds per locule.
