Crocata and caliginosa are very similar in a lot of ways, but there is one distinct feature of caliginosa that makes it easy to identify. Caliginosa has uniquely barron bases of the leaves, which have no visible trichomes on them.  It has a remarkable scent and its worth having simply for the beautiful yellow bloom
