Hi All,

I asked Alberto and Germán since they both are from Argentina if they could 
help with Hans' photos. Thanks to both of them for replying. And thanks to 
Doug for suggesting a possibility for the Haemanthus.

Here is what Alberto says:

"The Bolivian plant is probably a species of Chlidanthus (you must see the 
throats to tell the paraperigone from other genera)."…

"The orchid is a Stenorrhynchos." They both identify this one as an orchid, 
but Germán suggests Sacoila lanceolata…

"The Habranthus is H. cardenasiana." Both identify this one as a 
Habranthus, but the picture lacks enough details probably to determine 
which species. H. saltensis was the other possibility… 

"The last one is a species of Haylockia. I must check the descriptions to 
give you the species names." Germán suggested Habranthus or Zephyranthes, 
but suggested another picture from the side might help in an identification.…
