Triteleia laxa companion?

How surprising!  I have seen Amsinckias, but I did not recognize that  
flower as one, I guess because the 'curl' to the stem doesn't show.   
I've now searched calphotos, which has pictures of A.menziesii  
intermedia which shows red marks like the one in the Triteleia photo.   
I checked the map showing all the California counties it has been  
collected from…

and it is amazingly widespread.  Every country except Plumas and  
Alpine have contributed pressed specimens to herbaria, and that may  
not mean that it doesn't grow in them as well.

I found a second one also with red marks:  eastwoodiae, but at a quick  
glance, it is found in only about half of California's counties.
