Yellow Paintbrush - immature?

This little plant defies my ability to identify it. It is growing in an area where Yellow Paintbrush (Castilleja lutescens) are plentiful and the leaves and fine hairs seem similar to those on the paints. Could it be that these are an immature stage of the Yellow Paintbrush, or it is an entirely different plant? If anyone knows its identity, I would sure like to know.
