Clappia suaedifolia is the sole species in the North American genus of flowering plants in the daisy family, Clappia.[1][2]

Clappia suaedifolia is native to Texas and Tamaulipas. It is a succulent, branching shrub or subshrub up to 30 cm (12 inches) tall. Flower heads are yellow, appearing one at a time, with both ray florets and disc florets.[3][4][5]

The genus is named for Dr. Asahel Clapp, of New Albany, Indiana.[1]

Annotations on the type specimen of Haplopappus nealleyi in the US National Herbarium,[6] on which the genus Stanfieldia and sole species Stanfieldia nealleyi were also based,[7] suggest that these later names may be synonyms of Clappia suaedifolia. Current compilations, however, consider the application of these names to be unresolved.[8][9]
