Orange Flowered Bulb Question

Dear all;
	Years ago, I saw a large patch of an unusual daffodil; 
probably Div 1 or 2 although that's only looking back. The cups was a 
bright clear orange- no hint of red or fade to yellow. A nice bright 
ripe orange, orange with a pure white corona. The owner didn't know 
the name and I didn't then either. I can't recall seeing anything 
quite like it.
	Can anyone recommend a similar large cup daffodil with an 
pure orange cup and white corona? I have tried one called 'Orange 
Queen', but I don't think this is it. I bet it is something fairly 
common. Maybe just out of commerce.

	Sorry this is only a half orange bulb message, so here's the 
other half.

	Does anyone know of an orange flowered winter aconite 
(Eranthis hymelis) or other species? I seem to recall that one 
exists, but again haven't been able to pin it down. Appreciate your 

	OK, that's 2 half questions so it's a complete contribution.

		Best	Jim W.
