Hi, Gene. 

How about Erythronium californicum, an exaggerated form, 'White Beauty' or close to it. My problem with a californicum ID at first was that the stigma is too big and divided. But when I looked through my pix of 'White Beauty', I saw a stigma like yours, and very pronounced throat markings, also like yours. 


PS Erythroniums, like lilies and alliums, can be eaten. Sometimes they may taste better than they look. ;-)
