Hi Mary Sue,

Good point. I definitely haven't considered T. bridgesii but to tell the
truth I have a hard time deciphering the filament attachment. Perhaps you
have to dissect the flowers and compare them side by side, which I have
never done. I don't know this group very well so I value your opinion. So we
may have either species and a better photo of perhaps a dissected flower is
necessary to confirm the ID.
