I thought this maybe a candidate for C. therophilus.

I think it might be a tad early for C. therophilus. Late November flowering C. platychilus might not be so far-fetched given everything flowers a bit later at higher altitudes. I will confirm it as such based on that reasoning. Someone else can correct me if they disagree.
