Hippeastrum again

Hello Group,
It seems the Hippeastrum taxonomy has gotten me going...  As for the H. 
puniceum v. haywardii, I think it lists as H. soratense.  As for Amaryllis 
espiritensis, I believe it is now H. espiritense.  While reviewing the IPNI and MOBOT 
Tropicos3, I believe some species, etc. have yet to be revised into Hippeastum 
and remain in Amaryllis.  (OR the data base information has to be revised...) 
 I think.  I know Meerow et.al. did a paper concerning some Amaryllis > 
Hippeastrum a few years back and I need to get a copy of it.  Armchair research 
like this makes me a bit "knurtz" with all the "I think" and "I believe" 

Thank you German for the species recommendations.  I am working on a 
hybridization project and collecting as much information as possible.  I seem to be 
hitting a wall when it comes to finding the above two species.  I am quite 
certain the plants where available at some time (under *some* name) but perhaps 
they have disappeared into oblivion.

Be Well
Michael Loos
