A few years ago, I came up with a list of about 122 names, some of which 
were synonyms.  We are still waiting for Alan Meerow and/or Julie Dutilh to 
write a definitive monograph on the Amaryllidaceae of the New World or at 
least of South America.

The database file that I compiled is in the Files section of…

My compilation is in no way "definitive" at all!  It is not a scholarly 
work!  Take it as-is for what it's worth.
