Bahiopsis parishii known commonly as Parish goldeneye or shrubby goldeneye, is a flowering shrub in the family Asteraceae.

It is native to the southwestern United States, including southern California, far southern Nevada, and much of Arizona, as well as adjacent parts of northwest Mexico (Baja California and Sonora).


Bahiopsis parishii grows to 2 feet tall, with bright yellow flowers. It is a plant of desert areas, usually associated with creosote bush, and ranges from sea level to 5,000 ft (1,500 m) in elevation. It blooms after periods of rain, both in spring and in fall, or after the monsoon season in Arizona.


The species name honors either of two brothers, Samuel Bonsall Parish (1838–1928) and William Fletcher Parish (1840–1918), both active botanists in southern California. It is closely related to Bahiopsis deltoidea and is sometimes considered a variety of that species.
