I've redone the wiki page for Odontostomum which is a California genus with 
one species in the Tecophilaeaceae family. I find this very curious. How 
did it get here? This plant doesn't seem to have a lot of fans, but I think 
it is charming in an understated way and it is a reliable bloomer for me 
and that is a good trait. We saw it in the wild this April when we were 
walking around Bidwell Park in Chico. One of my companions walking ahead of 
me said to come see this pretty little white orchid. As I got closer I 
figured out what it really was. I had never seen it in the wild before. 
This past fall I replanted one of my octagons and I think I have come up 
with a better companion for it in Allium unifolium. This is one of those 
accidental pairings that worked.

I think Telos sells this plant.
