Thanks, Alan. I'm glad you spotted Lauw's question and answered it, 
since I didn't know either. Is there a book or website that lists all 
the currently accepted names for both Hymenocallis and Ismene?

Not knowing where all these plants originate from, should H. x festalis 
and H. x 'Sulphur Queen' be labelled Ismene x festalis and I. x 
'Sulphur Queen'?
Also, I remembered I have a couple of seedlings of Hymenocallis 
amancaes. Is that now Ismene amancaes?
