David: We've had this discussion either here or on another forum. You're right. Bulbils are in leaf axils and bulblets are usually attached to a larger bulb below ground.

I use bulblet and cormel to refer to the subterranean offsets produced by bulbs and corms respectively. I don't know whether this is correct usage, or even whether it matters a great deal. What do other members of the group think? Thank you, David E.
