We're stumped about this

We're stumped about this plant. Perhaps we are not seeing the true leaves? Do you think it actually might be a bulb or rhizome, such as Clivia caulescens, C. robusta, or C. nobilis?
However, the petals in your photo seem more pointed, and there aren't any leaves in the photo that resemble those of Clivia. Also, the main stem looks much less sturdy than a clivia's.
Clivia is native to South Africa, but can be grown outdoors in some US climates, such as parts of California, in shaded areas.
Without more information (size of flowers, height of plant, what location this is in, are the leaves in photo a part of this plant, size of the leaves, are the flowers shown fully open, what does the center of the flower look like, what time of year was this taken, is this a cultivated form (in a garden) or a wild plant, etc.), that's the best we can do.
