Dear Jim and Jamie,

Thanks for your help. I can see it is a very complex issue. I shouldn't 
think I'd need to register my nice plant from Bill's seed as I just plan to 
enjoy it. But I wasn't sure what to call it on the wiki. xHippeastrelia 
unnamed or Hippeastrum hybrid x Sprekelia formosissima
The created name for the cross is made up of most of the letters in 
Hippeastrum, but when I first saw mine I thought Sprekelia with fat tepals.

I created a page for it and Lee Poulsen says he has a picture to add to 
that page as well.

Bill wrote that he used a dwarf red Hippeastrum hybrid in the cross. The 
bloom is about 26 cm. tall, a nice height I think.
