Description:

Very pretty small white flowers with yellow anthers and fine purplish lines on petals at high altitude. Maybe a saxifrage, but I can't find a match for it. No pics of basal leaves, but leaves on stem small and lanceolate.

Many thanks Fenwickfield. L. catharticum looks just right and it is recorded for Triglav park in Slovenia and is known as an Alpine/subalpine plant in Europe. I did check Slovenian flower site for possible Linaceae but it only showed some showier blue species.
