There is in fact no way of knowing if any of these are true species without 
knowing their detailed provenance.  Assuming some of them are species, I 
would guess as follows:

IMG_1996.jpg --  Hippeastrum puniceum
P1010658.jpg  --  Hippeastrum puniceum
IMG_2086.jpg  --  Hippeastrum reginae (maybe -- depends on size, habit, etc.)
IMG_2080.jpg  --  commercial hybrid
IMG_2062.jpg  --  commercial hybrid

Look through the wiki here and through the IBS Gallery at…
