About three years ago, Ben Zonneveld began measuring the DNA of  
erythroniums.  He supplied a list of species he lacked and asked for  
leaves so he could weigh the DNA.

I am curious about his results.  Have they been published?

A friend who supplied  leaves to Dr. Zonneveld just told me that the  
plant we consider to be a dwarf form of grandiflorum (the yellow one  
that grows on mountains), that grows at a low elevation on one small  
mountain on Vancouver Island is perhaps a new species.
