Eugene, Sean et al,

My immediate assumption on reading the original 
listing was that it was meaning Schizostylis 
coccinea (aka Hesperantha coccinea), but I wasn't 
sure if there actually WAS an Iris coccina I 
wasn't aware of (which was entirely 
possible).  Does anyone know whether the 
Schizostylis/Hesperantha coccinea is known as Iris coccinea?
