Mystery Strumaria, Hymenocallis, Androcymbium

I have Strumaria truncata in bloom right now, and it is very different from this mystery
flower. Flowers are pendant; leaves have no hairs. I think one of the characteristics of
the genus is the sheath around the base of the leaf clump. In S. truncata it is red.
