There's an interesting note in FoC:

Quote
Martyn Rix (pers. comm.) notes that Fritillaria verticillata commonly has an inflorescence with only one flower, and that reports of several-flowered plants are the result of longstanding confusion between this species and F. thunbergii. Rix also notes that F. albidoflora may be distinct from F. verticillata differing as follows: flowers opening nearly flat (vs. campanulate), tepals 2--3 cm (vs. 3--5 cm), and nectaries orbicular (vs. ovate), ca. 6 mm above base of tepal.

This is really F.verticillata, very similar to F.tortifolia but still light difference on nectaries

It is lovely and the seed capsules seem quite prominent at flowering time, or ovaries I suppose.
