Bajacalia is a genus of three flowering plants in the sunflower family, Asteraceae. The genus was erected in 2003 to house two species moved from genus Porophyllum, now named Bajacalia tridentata and B. crassifolia. The third was newly described at the time and named Bajacalia moranii.[1] These plants are endemic to Baja California in Mexico. They have succulent leaves and yellow flowers.[2]
