Thanks David for adding the pictures and more information to the wiki. Max 
Withers translated the web pages from Maurice Bossard for me and with that 
and the information from David it appears that the two species that people 
get mixed up about are not N. gracilis and N. northiana, but N. northiana 
and N. candida. I can see how that would happen by looking at the pictures 
on the wiki.

Max has also found a link with a key in answer to Jim's desires:…
The summary of the article is also in English, but it appears that the 
article and the key is in Portuguese apparently. Max says there is a member 
of our list who might be able to translate the key for us or perhaps for 
the people who are most interested.

Lee translated a Leucocoryne key for me a number of years ago and I found 
it very helpful in sorting out the plants I was growing.

Our list is an amazing resource.
