Please direct me to the database entry for the following Trillium. Its narrow flower petals do not match the images shown for Trillium pusillum in the NGA database. I need more specific help.

I've submitted a proposal to add the common name of Dwarf Wakerobin. I couldn't find any information about the width of the flower petals so I wonder if they might be variable?

The petals look very different. The Mt. Cuba specimen's petals are much thinner and lance-shaped with toothed edges. Should I upload my image anyway?

Trillium pusillum varies quite a bit in appearance across its range. I have no problem believing that both the pictures that are currently in the database and your pictures are of Trillium pusillum.

OK. Thank you, Kent. With your blessing, I will go ahead and upload it.
