    What are the hyaline vesicles for? (I mean, aside from thrilling us with their beauty and giving photographers a worthy subject to concentrate on;)

    Fortuitous timing. I’m trying to ID a flower that’s clearly in the *old* Liliaceae, and likely in Asparagaceae, but after looking at thousands of pics in Calphotos, I was at a loss. Then seeing today’s BPotD, I searched Calphotos for Triteleia, and while none seem a perfect fit, they are clearly in the ballpark. I know this really belongs in another part of the fora, but I wonder if someone could ID this for me: http://www.flickr.com/photos/15627081@N08/4503472949/in/set-72157623808095432/ (and the preceding 4 pics). It was found in coastal SoCal, yards from a lagoon, but I’m beginning to think it may be non-native. Daniel, please let me know if you want me to move this to the ID forum.
