Lycoris seed production? Intergeneric hybrids?

Are Lycoris noted for not producing seed unless cross pollinated?  I've had L.aurea for years and never got seed ... until last year ... when l brushed the heck out of its stigma with fresh Amaryllis belladonna pollen.  They produced about 4 dozen relatively fat, black seeds, only about half of which germinated (most likely due to my lack of knowlege and poor cultural conditions.)  Those wich germinated grew through most of the winter and went dormant in late spring.  They are now pushing up new, albeit small, leaves.  Are there any known Lycoris X Amaryllis intergeneric hybrids?
