|Desert Combleaf flower|
The plants are known by the common name combleaf, owing to the resemblance of their deeply lobed leaves to a comb.
There are two species within the genus:
- Polyctenium williamsiae — Washoe combleaf; quite rare and is specially protected in Nevada. Found in the Washoe Valley playas of the Virginia Range. 
- Polyctenium fremontii — Desert combleaf; more common species, found in the Great Basin habitats of northeastern California, southeast Oregon, southwest Idaho, and northwest Nevada.
