Lomatium martindalei is a species of flowering plant in the carrot family known by the common names Cascade desertparsley and coast range lomatium. It is native to the west coast of North America, from Vancouver Island south to the Klamath Mountains of far northern California. It can be found in a number of coastal and inland habitats, from coastal plains to high mountain talus and meadows. This is a perennial herb growing 15 to 40 centimeters tall from a carrot-like taproot. There is often no stem, the erect or spreading leaves and inflorescence emerging from ground level. The thinly fleshy leaves may approach 20 centimeters long, their blades divided into leaflets made up of many small oval segments. The inflorescence bears an umbel of small yellowish flowers.
