Calochortus kennedyi flowerRed Mariposa or Desert Mariposa.

I have not seen this in Santa Barbara county though it is supposed to grow here. I have seen it off Lockwood Valley Rd. in Ventura county at about 5200ft elevation. It was blooming in mid June.

This is a small Mariposa with deep red flowers.
