9. Fritillaria gentneri Gilkey, Madroño. 11: 138, figs. 6–10. 1951.

Bulb scales: large several; small numerous. Stem 5–7 dm. Leaves in 1–3 whorls of 3–5 leaves per node proximally, alternate distally, 7–15 cm; blade broadly linear to lanceolate. Flowers spreading to nodding; perianth broadly campanulate; tepals red to purple, clearly mottled with yellow, 3.5–4 cm, apex spreading, not recurved; nectaries linear, 1/2 tepal length; style obviously branched for 1/3–1/2 its length, branches widely spreading, longer than 1.5 mm. Capsules winged.

Flowering Apr--Jun. Dry woodlands; of conservation concern; 300--1500 m; Oreg.

Fritillaria gentneri is a restricted endemic closely allied with F. recurva and F. affinis, with which it can be confused. Some evidence suggests that it may represent a hybrid between those two species. More study is needed to determine whether it should remain recognized as a distinct species.
