Zoology / identification

Post unidentified photos of species here to get help
  1. Smooth leaf douglasia - Dwarf primrose I need help with this one! I figured it would be simple to id - national park, kind of distinctive, but noooo I can't find anything quite like it. It looks a bit like rock spirea but has totally different flowers, it looks a bit like hen and chicks, but has a different growth pattern… The flowers that are budding on this plant out grow right from the center of the rosettes and are bright magenta.<br />

    I figured this would be an easy one, but it's totally flummoxing me.. it's a rosette forming succulent that spreads on runners. The buds in the center will open to be bright magenta flowers that look a bit azaela like and there seem to be as many as 3 or 4 clustered there. It looks a bit like rock spirea, but the flowers are totally wrong, a bit like hen and chicks, but that's not right either…
    update - I think I've narrowed it down a bit to possibly a purslane but still haven't found a really good match
