After I sent that, I noticed that this whole business of Notholirion and 
Ornithogalum had me even more befuddled that I had realized:  I made the 
example quite backwards, thanks to that befuddlement.

Hopefully most of the other folks will be too confused to notice how 
confused I was!

Best wishes,
Jim S.
