Pterugiform galanthus

Dear John,
as publisher of the new volume on cultivars, if you are? You are in a unique position to publish this wonderful term.
I am sure that some will prefer to go the road of pocs instead of poculiforms and thus terries instead of pterugiforms...
There is need for a precise term for this group which has grown exponentially over the last few years.
It is odd that this plant grown for about forty years has only recently started to show its potential as a parent.
Is it because os us all dead-heading our collections?
I only leave seed on those that I would like to seed and do very little deliberate hybridising.
I have one good seedling of 'Trym' here which is like a prolific and dwarf 'South Hayes'.
Last week after appraisal and after growing on for over four years We decided it merited a name.
It is to be called 'Philippe André Meyer'. It has and will be again twin-scaled!
Kind regards,
