I enjoyed the article about a species, which bloom only in Tibron.  I never
heard about the particular Calochortus before.  I lived nearby Tibron for a
few years, and I know there are many rare wildflowers, which
bloom only in that small area.  I never visited John Thomas Howell
Wildflower Preserve in Tibron, but that must be the place where you can
find unusual looking Calochortus tiburonensis.
I checked the article about the Wildflower Preserve.  Unfortunately, they
do not mention about Calochortus tiburonensis.   Instead they describe
another rare wildflowers.

This year I moved from Tibron area to Palo Alto area, and I found abundant
pure white fairy lanterns, Calochortus Albus in the Santa Cruz Mountain.  A
plain yellow Calochortus bloomed at sunny hillside. So beautiful.
