I was just looking at your mystery Fritillaria...... I can't help with ID 
but I do know that when IDing Frits it is important to be able to see the 
markings and organ arrangement inside the flower as so many of the Frits 
are superficially the same on the outside but can vary quite extensively on 
the inside.  You might be able to get someone to ID it a little easier if 
there is a photo of the inner markings etc as well?

Just trying to help to see if someone can then identify it for you.  The 
problem so often with the Frits is that you end up naturally getting 
hybrids between a few of the species which somewhat muddy the 
identification waters! <grin>

Good luck!!
