Crinum nigra/Crinum asiaticum 'Cuprifolium'

Please help resolve some nomenclature confusion.  Here in San Diego,  
we grow a giant crinum with long, wine colored leaves and a pale pink  
flower that we call Crinum nigra which we all assume is a variety of  
Crinum asiaticum.  That name does not appear in any literature that  
we've been able to find, however.  The closest thing we find when we  
search the web is Crinum asiatium 'Cuprifolium.'  Can anyone clear up  
this confusion?
