Phacelia sp., what is it?

I didn’t collect a voucher because I didn’t have a permit, and because all I saw was the one plant. It was so weird and I stared at it for an hour and all I wanted to do was kill it for history and it has haunted me for years. It keys out as one currently accepted entity, and can kind of sort of fit a few possible characteristics of the synonyms, but not in any satisfying way, because it really isn’t any of them, and it is so obviously different, you know? I would just like a good way to make sure. Using the SCIENCE. I have seen a couple of photos similar on the internetz, so if you see something that looks like this plant out in the drought fields, make a duplicate voucher and send it my way. Or not, and describe a new species yourself. I will thank you either way, because then there will be an answer. And it will have a name.
