Further to Art's fine pictures (page 6/reply #82) & subsequent comments, there's an interesting article on Phelypaea boissieri in the Feb 2010 issue of Curtis' Botanical Magazine devoted to parasitic plants.

Some more Iris acutiloba - I think ssp acutiloba.  These were magnificent plants found at 1500m.  The flowers were more than 11 cm tip to tip.

Hi Author the iris here looks like I acutiloba ssp longitepala which used to be called I acutiloba ssp lineolata the first name has just been described by Mathews and Zarrei and is very distinctive species did you find it near Zanjan. Great pictures and makes me wont to go back!!
