The exception rather than the rule in the family. I have another proposal (in good faith, I am not being sarcastic this time). Why do not reconsider the question of time ago of changing the name of Pacific Bulb Society? If it becomes the Pacific Plant Society then it would cover all sorts of plants (which a lot of people posting here seems to amply prefer) and then we can discuss bulbs sensu lato stating what they are without any conflict and confusion with the hundreds of other types of plants that have been mentioned, described, uploaded, advrtsed, etc. since PBS was founded seemingly eons ago.
