This member of the Apiaceae family was given this name by John Merle Coulter and Joseph Nelson Rose in 1888 as Peucedanum hendersonii, then in 1900 as a Lomatium. It is from the south-western part of north America, growing in clay, receiving a little water and lots of sun. The caudex will grow to ten centimetres, the stem to 30 centimetres. The flowers are yellow.

The genera name means 'edge or small border', as to its fruit. The species name after Louis Fourniquet Henderson, early 19th century botanist.
