What is This Plant? (Trout Lily)

I've been trying to identify this plant for over a year and I still haven't found it. It looks like a miniature tiger lily with green leaves mottled with purple-brown. It grows wild here in the Sault, but I'm not sure if it's a wildflower or some kind of hybrid that escaped captivity. Any ideas?

Hardiness Zone: 4a

The common name is snake flower. I don't know the Latin name.

Looks like a trout lily. We have them all through our woods.

It is in the lily family. One entry above is right. It is sometimes called a trout lily. My mom always called the Adder's tongues and I only have seen the yellow ones. They come in white too. See:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trout_Lily It has photos of them:) Harriet
