Dear PBSers,

	I think I have a new record in number of deletes over pointless ranting. 

	Meanwhile I don’t recall any one helping to ID species in the genus Chionodoxa. My go-to for cultivated bulbs is ‘The European Garden Flora’. Vol  has a key to the six most commonly encountered species in the genus. These keys aren’t always easy to use and don’t always cover EVERY species, but I think this one is pretty good. Vol 1 P 214-215

	Dennis surely you know that Google is your friend.  And if not that there is always ‘World of the Iridaceae' by Innes. Fun to go through the pages and pictures.   A newer look is The Iris Family: Natural History and Classification by Peter Goldblatt. Worth a look.
