You're welcome. I really like the site and find it has really good images to help narrow research before hitting the books :)

I've got this species narrowed down to L. affinis or L. nanus and will have to do a little more research to figure out which one. I've seen photos of both species that closely resemble this flower. Either way, it sure is a beauty. Cindy, thanks for the lead on the Calflora website.
