This delicate eriastrum has small light to dark blue funnel-shaped flowers, often with a reddish or purple spot at the base of the lobes. The flower tube is white, cream or yellow. The corolla is 7–10 mm across with stamens that barely, if at all, extend beyond the sinuses (i.e. the base of the lobes). This is found only in the southeastern parts of the county.
Note: Matthews and Mitchell’s The Plants of Monterey County includes this as E. wilcoxii * (Coast Range Eriastrum)
