Name that seedling edition!

A wide diversity of seedlings has been germinating in the Tucson Mountains, where my research study sites are located, since the monsoon season got seriously under way 10 days ago. Watching the cryptic cotyledons flush out into cagey leaves has me playing plant detective. See how you do – which seedlings can you identify?

Are these two the same? One is just older than the other?
These two lobed cotyledons might be a distinctive clue?

 

These you should recognize from a previous post, if not otherwise.
