Scilla paucei ?

 I think they are intending Scilla paucifolia Baker (1875) which is synonymous with Ledebouria socialis according to current works. I believe the PBS-wiki has it as Ledebouria pauciflora which is just a mistake in the name. I am finding Baker was very keen in his naming of plants, nearly as good as J.K. Small and rare named things several times like Levielle.

I have some bulbs of S. paucei, and the only information available are some Asian websites which I can't read! There is no mention of this on the PBS website under Ledebouria, Scilla, Drimiopsis, etc. 
Help me figure out this enigmatic bulb. 
I have photos of them flowering right now, even though I know I cannot include them here. 
If it is just a really rare bulb, and the PBS does not have a photo or description of it yet, I'm happy to contribute my photos. 
Thanks, Jude
