Mary Sue certainly is correct that the bulb I photographed in the jungles of 
Peru looks like Cipura paludosa posted by Germán Roitman. I'm not familiar with 
this family, so I don't know how many other possibilities there are. I didn't 
really have time to poke into the structure of the flower, so if there is more 
than one Cipura from that location (Peru) that has this appearance, it will be 
impossible to give it a species name.  At least until I go back to look at it 
again, or ask someone visiting the Explorer's Inn to send another picture, 
showing the interior. The internet sure has changed how we can do research, eh?
