Githopsis diffusa is a species of flowering plant in the bellflower family known by the common name San Gabriel bluecup.[1]

It is native to California and Baja California, where it grows in open habitat on the slopes of foothills and mountains.[2]


Githopsis diffusa is an annual herb forming a small clump at ground level or growing erect to a maximum height near 30 centimeters.[2] The stem may have stiff hairs and the leaves are generally small and pointed.[2]

The small, solitary flower appearing at the tip of the stem is tubular to funnel-shaped and white or purple with a white throat.[2]
