Changes have been made to the Hieronymiella genus in the Wiki. Among others,
H. marginata together with images, now appears. Many suggestions, from both
within and outside this list-site, were made to me. Multiple genera, in
addition to Hieronymiella, were included in the possibilities. The
Hippeastrum family is large! Based on the Herbertia article referenced in
the accompanying text the species name H. marginata was selected. Others,
including 'H. argentina' have, since that article was published, been
subsumed beneath it. One annoying issue is that a Kew article 
shows an image of that species. According to its author, the image ID is
incorrect. There also appears to be one matter that is not, in my opinion,
fully resolved - whether the species is hysteranthous. People more
knowledgeable about this topic than myself could probably address it. For
now, at least, this is the species chosen.

I'd like to thank everyone who has participated, either directly or
indirectly, in the identification process - Alessandro, Alberto, Alan, Rob,
Lee and Mary Sue.
