Mimulus nudatus, the bare monkeyflower, is a species of monkeyflower endemic to the serpentine soils of Colusa, Lake and Napa Counties in California.

It is an annual flower with bright yellow tube-shaped blooms and small narrow leaves.


Mimulus nudatus is a member of the Mimulus guttatus species complex, a group of closely related wildflower species that vary dramatically in mating system, life history and edaphic tolerance. Species in the M. guttatus complex are largely inter-fertile, with some notable exceptions. In particular, M. nudatus is reproductively isolated from other complex members via a postzygotic isolating barrier during seed development.
