Hi there Kevin and Jim,

Many thanks for your thoughts on my mystery bulb 

I'm sorry that I have been slow in replying, but I was off the air for a while.

The flowers do have a greenish centre to them, though they are over now so 
its too late to send a further shot.  So, I guess that it is save to call 
it H. sp. aff. mandoni for the moment.

It seems to be a good year for flowering amaryllids here.  I've had a great 
H. stylosum in flower for the past week and Phaedranassa 
viridiflora.  Also, the Tropaeolum, Bomarea and Alstromeria are all 
flowering well.  Having said that, our last frost was only this last week!

Thanks again for your help.

Best regards,
David Victor
