Coincya monensis B. S. Walters

Dry sunny disturbed soil, often sandy; a European native first collected in Berrien Co. by F. A. Swink & L. A. Masters in 1992. 

This species resembles a large Diplotaxis tenuifolia in general habit, but differs in its longer petals and longer fruits and generally larger size. In flower, the petals have a conspicuous pattern of darker veins especially when dried; this absent or faint in the Diplotaxis.
