Beautiful Frits Janis, I like F. walujevii best with the broad shouldered bells and green-toned tops.

I have a Frit in flower, originally from Chen Yi identified as F. unibracteata, but since almost everything from Chen Yi is misidentified, I'm showing 3 pics for other opinions.

Yes, it is unibracteata

Fritillaria orientalis in Georgia near Kazbegi grows in splits of vertical rock in very peaty leafmold soil under shrubs. It still didn't started blooming. On third picture its seedlings in peat pockets on vertical rock.

Fritillaria collina was in full bloom at same locality. It was growing on flat meadows with sparse other vegetation. This surprised me as earlier I saw it only under shrubs in sparse birch forests.

The collina is very good, a strong form with robust foliage.

There was only one spot where we found it. So I collected no one bulb (I have it from neighbour N Osethia and from Armenia, as well as from neighbour Truso gorge, collected by Czech collector). Locally collina is very abundant. It is good grower in open garden. It was a little too early, orientalis were only in buds, but I showed it here just for its very specific habitat. Habitat of Fritillaria latifolia was covered by 1 m thick snow.

Can anyone put a name to this Frit?
I have grown it from seed (Chiltern seed), obtained as F. falcata which it obviously is not.
I don't like it & 4 years wasted anticipation, so it would be nice to get rid of it with a name.

Pete, I'm not sure what this one is but my 'falcata' from Chiltern Seeds is very slow to reach flowering size. Although I was resigned to waiting I didn't think I'd have to worry too :-\ ;)

Could you show a picture of the foliage please?

Is it not grayana or what is also known as biflora `Wayne Martha Roderick?'

Diane your note came up just as I was writing mine. I think we mean the same thing.

"Wayne Roderick" is a form of F affinis tristulis.  
"Martha Roderick" is a form of biflora, at one point called F roderickii, then F biflora ssp biflora, now F biflora ssp ineziana.
I am sure we do mean the same thing, but life is sometimes confusing (and plant names are often confusing).  It seems there was some confusion a year ago, oddly, almost to the day:
