|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Fritillaria is a genus of about 100 species of bulbous plants in the family Liliaceae, native to temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere. They often have nodding, bell- or cup-shaped flowers, and the majority are spring flowering. The name refers to the checkered pattern, frequently of chocolate-brown and greenish yellow, that is common to many species.|
The Fritillaria lusitanica, Wikström (photo), is native to the Iberian Peninsula. Lusitania was the Latin name for most of Portugal during the Roman Empire. The photo was taken a couple of km south of Lisbon.
