(2317) F. Kamtschatcensis, Ker. Hook., Fl. II., 181.
The specimens referred here are much taller and stouter than the next species, and, as far as I am aware, are confined to the proximity of the sea. The number of flowers varies from two to four, and they are usually of a dull purple. The first whorl of leave3 is generally four, but the next usually has five. Abundant on grassy banks within the influence of spring tides at the mouth of the Nanaimo River, a little below the new bridge; occasional specimens at Gordon Head, four miles from Victoria, Vancouver Island. (Macoun.) Vicinity of Victoria, 1876. (Dawson.) Sitka, Ounalashka, and Cape Prince of Wales. (Rothr. Alask.) North-west coast, on the beach; Observatory Inlet to Stikine River. (Hooker, Fl.)
(2318.) F. lanceolata, Pursh, Fl. I., 230; Hook., Fl. II., 181.
Very abundant on dry gravelly soil in some localities on the West Coast. Above Lytton, on the Fraser River, B.C. (Dawson.) In profusion at Cedar Hill near Victoria, Vancouver Island. (Fletcher.) Very common throughout the oak woods and rocky, mountainous places from Victoria to Nanaimo and north to Qualicum, where it is especially abundant near the sea; and across the island to Alberni. (Macoun.) Nootka Sound. (Menzies.)
Var. floribunda, Benth. On dry ground, King's Farm, and at Cadboro Bay, near Victoria, Vancouver Island. (Fletcher.)

Lilium (?)pudicum, Pursh, Fl. I., 228.
