I've added Cameron's pictures of this species to the wiki.…

  Do we think we should rename Paul Tyerman's picture of this species? I 
have noted that it is probably A. praecox.

For those of you who wonder why there is a question mark in front of 
Overberg, it is because Cameron has provided me with information about this 
area of South Africa where he now lives and I plan to make a wiki page 
including it, but haven't had time to do so yet. He has taken pictures of 
bulbs in this area and we'll be able to reference the Overberg page when 
they are added over time to the wiki so people will know a bit about the 
region where they are found.
