    Plant found in Weiner falls area of Alberni Valley. Doesn't seem to correspond with anything in Pojar and MacKinnon, nor under Orobanchaceae on E-flora. Edited by modertor wcutler: photo rotated.

    Thanks, I considered that, but Pojar and MacKinnon states the "flowers all face one way" (definition of monotropa), so I thought it couldn't be that.

    Thanks,
    When I look through more of the E-flora photos, I become convinced that you're right.And thanks for fixing the rotation issue.
