To continue on this...

I thought I might explain, with an example, why I included the last 
paragraph to this related post. In the past, when I have been able to 
contribute Lycoris seed that are species, I still included "x OP", 
because my beds were frequented by hawk moths (I think that's what they 
were) and hummingbirds. Since I often had overlapping bloom from one 
species to the next, I thought it best not to infer complete 
self-pollination or population pollination.
