" i heard that there's a botanist that is quite prolific at describing "new" species of amaryllids, even when they are just variants of the same species. i guess he just likes to see his name published."


Not only amaryllids, also other families of bulbous and non bulbous plants. Regrettably IPNI and Kew accept some of these unfounded changes, hence the artificial taxonomic chaos in South American bulbs.
