Fritillaria ayakoana / Izumokobaimo イズモコバイモ

 
Fritirallia ayakoana inhabits the fringe of a deciduous tree forest where the new green above covers up in mid-late spring. Appearing from underground in late February, F. ayakoana flowers in March and dies back in late May. That is why they call this a spring ephemeral. This species is endemic to Shimane, and the Red Data Book lists it as a CR+EN. The flower (a set of sepals) is a cup-shaped campanulate and has a striking nectary on each tepal, a few millimeters apart from the base, which identifies this species.
