Dear Susan;

Apparently you are correct. However I would put the name of Hymenocallis
virescens to it until this is proven to be incorrect, as this species
now contains both H. pedunculata, and H. macleana which were regarded as
distinct species at one time. Thus there must (even if slight) perforce
be variants within the species H. virescens. Cheers, John E. Bryan
