[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.
