Dear Alberto,

Thanks for explaining again. I understand now that Nothoscordum bivale is 
not the same plant as Tristagma bivale. In reading your lists I am 
wondering if you have changed your mind about Nothoscordum dialystemon. In 
the past you have told us it should be called Nothoscordum felipponei. It 
had 8 tepals instead of six, but this was not enough of a difference to be 
a separate genus. In one of your notes you are listing it as N. dialystemon 
which is how Howard lists it in the Herbertia article. Could you clarify 
this for us?
