We saw, in just one spot in Tanzania, a Crinum species that I did not 
recognize.  The picture is shown at:…

Just scroll down to the Crinum section, and it follows the piece on Crinum 
macowanii.  I'd appreciate any help in IDing the unknown Crinum.  Since we 
saw it in a national park, there was no possibility of bringing a specimen 

Crinum macowanii was seen in numerous places, including Tarangire National 
Park, Ngorongoro crater, and one or two places in the Serengeti.

None of the bulbs seen were in seed; in fact, they all seem to have just 
started to bloom.
