Tsuh, Eurycles is a synonym of Proiphys, but P. cunninghamii and P. amboinensis are definitely different to each other. The P. cunninghamii to my way of thinking is a neater, more organised flowerhead with smaller flowers and looking much more like a "Jonquil" in a lot of ways. The P. amboinensis has much larger flowers and is more spectacular but I found that the flower head looks much looser (in the ones I have seen anyway) and despite the larger flowers it is not as nice to me. There was some minor differences in the leaves as well. These observations were made recently at the Australian National Botanic Gardens here in Canberra, Australia where they grow them in a heated glasshouse. Cheers. Paul Tyerman Canberra, Australia.
