Kudos to Lori for her identification of Cycladenia humilis! Encouraged by that, I am posting another stumper.
Found in open desertish environment, east of Ely NV, May 1990. Several knowledgeable persons have failed to come up with any
suggestion. I will not mention my own tentative family associations, as I do not want to maybe falsely predispose people looking at this.
This was the only time and place I had come across this plant.
